Simple But Commonly Misspelt English Words


Misspelt English Words
  There are lots of English words which seem very easy to spell but are commonly misspelt. Today I am going to show you some of these words:

1. Continuous

This word is often spelt with the omission of the 'u' that comes immediately after the 'n.' e.g. 'continous.'  This is totally wrong.


2. a lot

In 'a lot,' the 'a' is separated from the 'lot' but most persons spell it by joining them. e.g. 'alot.'


3. Separate

This word is often spelt as 'seperate' by most persons perhaps because of the way it is pronounced.


4. Pronunciation

This is a very common mistake among learners and even native speakers of English. I just told a friend of mine who spelt it wrongly some days ago that the correct spelling is 'pronunciation' and not 'pronounciation.'


5. Indict

This word means 'to accuse' but because of the way it is pronounced, most persons always spell as 'indite.'


6. Occasion 

This is another word that has embarrassed so many in terms of spelling. Most persons always spell it this way, 'occassion' not knowing that the word contains just an 's.'


7. Phlegmatic

This word is often spelt as 'flegmatic' by most speakers of English because of the way it is pronounced.


8. Etiquette.

This word is pronounced as 'eticket'; thus, most speakers of English who are not familiar with the word spell it the way it is pronounced.


9. Oblige

This word is pronounced as 'oblarge', hence, making it  difficult for English speakers to spell it correctly.


10. Archaic

Because of the way this word is pronounced, most persons spell it as 'akehik.'


11. Occurrence

Some persons tend to omit an 'r' when asked to spell this word.


12. Effrontery 

While some persons spell this word without the first 'r', e.g. 'effontery', others spell it by replacing the 'e' with an 'a' e.g. 'effrontary.'


13. Vis-à-vis

Most persons are yet to know the correct spelling of this word. It means 'in relation to.'


14. Exhilarate

This word means 'to make happy' but most persons spell it as 'excelarate' perhaps because of its pronunciation.


15. Exuberant 

So many speakers of English spell this word wrongly. It is spelt as 'exhoberant' against its real spelling probably because of the way it pronounced.


16. Pneumonia

It is pronounced as 'nimonia' so most persons assume it is spelt the same way too.


17. Appalling

Persons who have not come in contact with this word spell it as 'appolling' or 'appauling' probably because of the way it is pronounced.


18. Privilege

Quite a good number of persons spell it as 'previledge.'


19. Grateful

Most perons spell it as 'greatful.'


20. Connive.

Most persons spell this word as 'connaive.'
