Terrible Spelling

As you have seen first hand, I am a terrible speller when I forget to use spell check (and even with spell check--if it's a homonym). I just got a third of these commonly misspelled words incorrect! I'm sure you can beat my number. (thanks to Kitchen Table Math).

I noticed a pattern in the test. There were multiple questions concerning when a word changes to have -ment added to the end. There were several with two letters with double of the same consontant. There were a number where the issue was ence vs ance or ant vs ent.

There were two about the England preferred way vs. American and I'd never learned the English way to spell those words.

I felt the test was skewed as it overly focused on those main spelling rules.

I didn't get them all right. I feel like I need to brush up on those spelling rules though, LOL.
