Thread: Words you frequently misspell

    I forgot that 'restaurant' is another one until I had to spell it after replying to this thread. Also 'refrigerator.' I always want to try and cram a 'D' in there (SHUT UP ALL OF YOU) because of 'fridge.'

    I like "girls". It was a mistake. Repeated, quite often.

    I tried spelling never mind as one word and just assumed it was because of the culturally recognizable Nirvana album.

    I don't spell word incorrectly.

    "Practice" and "Practise." Even as I type it, spellcheck has (wrongly) put a red line under the second one.

    But this isn't a simple British vs American English snafu, this word is spelled differently depending on whether it is a verb or a noun. So in the sentence: "She will practise her skills during the practice session," both spellings are correct.

    Now I think about it, any 'c' vs 's' causes trouble. I broke about a dozen links to documents at work the other day by doing a find and replace on 'licence' with the British spelling 'license.'
