    Default Words you frequently misspell

    I often spell separate as seperate until the red spell check line reminds me it's wrong.

    I used the word "manoeuvres" over in the staff forum and retyped it at least five times before I got pissed off and used a different word. I then thought "No, this word will not defeat me" so I looked it up.

    Other ones include diarrhoea, Caribbean, vicious and yes... separate.

    I often have to think about "necessary" and "necessarily", which in the past I was so bad at spelling, the Spell Check didn't even know what I was trying to say. I'm never quite sure where the hell the "u" is meant to go in "restaurant".
    The one true comparison to love and hate is; when you allow either to overcome you, it can make it so that you canít think of anything other than that one person...

    'During' and 'referring' are a couple of my most common. One has one R where as the other has two and I never remember which.

    'Tomorrow' trips me up more than I'd like to admit. I use to be thrown off as to whether it was two M's or R's until I created a little mind trick (tom-ARE-ow), but I still second guess if the second O is really an A sometimes.

    My most common typo is 'have' which ends up being 'hvae' more often than not.

    I'm just an awful speller in general, so I'm always taking the time to double check when I don't have spellcheck to back me up.

    I'd rather have a whole paragraph of typos over a person who desperately needs to inform you that you've misspelled something. It always comes off as pretentious.

    It always has less to do with wanting to actually fix a typo, and more to do with them wanting to let you know how smart they are.

    I am here to inform you, with all of my profound wisdom of grammar and the English language, that it is "that", in fact, and not "taht".

    Anything that would be spelled differently between British and American English. Had some British teachers in middle school, and now many words have an extra u. Colour, favourite, etc.

    Exaggerate. Couldn't remember the number of r's and g's. I was so embarrassed, as a lit teacher, that I couldn't remember how to spell this word, so I invented a trick. I'm counting down from my own stupidity every time I try to spell exaggerate: two g's, one r, zero mistakes. Never made one again.

    Diarrhea is the other one.
