words that are hard to spell

One of the nice things about having a blog is that I am often challenged with the spelling of words. It’s nice to know the proper spelling of words from our language. To further this experience I started keeping a list of such words. Each time I get ten words added to my list, it will become a blog post.

So here’s my first ten. The spelling on the left was my initial guess. Misspelled words have the correct spelling to the right.

1. peninsula
2. deranged
3. temporaile – temporal
4. convoluted
5. algorithms
6. goatee
7. seperate – separate
8. perpetuate
9. committment – commitment
10. dynacism – dynamism

40% for my first ten. Not bad. I always misspell “separate”. Hopefully this new list will help me remember the correct spelling. Now I can now continue the list with “misspell”. I wasn’t sure if that second “s” should be there.

Do you have a goatee? Or a Van Dyck?

I always spell it seperate. I think one of our grade school teachers at Hope taught it to us that way.

I want to make a list of words that I know how to spell, but i always type it the wrong way. Dangerious is one.
