  1. 1. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>schedule </li></ul><ul><li>If perfecting your spelling is on your schedule, remember the [sk] is spelled as in &quot;school.&quot; (If you use British or Canadian pronunciation, why do you pronounce this word [shedyul] but &quot;school,&quot; [skul]? That has always puzzled me.) </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  2. 2. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>separate </li></ul><ul><li>How do you separate the [e]s from the [a]s in this word? Simple: the [e]s surround the [a]s. </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  3. 3. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>sergeant </li></ul><ul><li>The [a] needed in both syllables of this word has been pushed to the back of the line. Remember that, and the fact that [e] is used in both syllables, and you can write your sergeant without fear of misspelling his rank. </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  4. 4. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>supersede </li></ul><ul><li>This word supersedes all others in perversity. As if we don't have enough to worry about, keeping words on -ceed and -cede (&quot;succeed,&quot; &quot; precede ,&quot; etc.) straight in our minds, this one has to be different from all the rest. The good news is: this is the only English word based on this stem spelled -sede. </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  5. 5. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>their / they're / there </li></ul><ul><li>They're all pronounced the same but spelled differently. Possessive is &quot;their&quot; and the contraction of &quot;they are&quot; is &quot;they're.&quot; Everywhere else, it is &quot;there.&quot; </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  6. 6. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>threshold </li></ul><ul><li>This one can push you over the threshold. It looks like a compound &quot;thresh + hold&quot; but it isn't. Two [h]s are enough. </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  7. 7. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>twelfth </li></ul><ul><li>Even if you omit the [f] in your pronunciation of this word (which you shouldn't do), it is retained in the spelling. </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  8. 8. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>tyranny </li></ul><ul><li>If you are still resisting the tyranny of English orthography at this point, you must face the problem of [y] inside this word, where it shouldn't be. The guy is a &quot;tyrant&quot; and his problem is &quot;tyranny.&quot; (Don't forget to double up on the [n]s, too.) </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  9. 9. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>until </li></ul><ul><li>I will never stop harping on this until this word is spelled with an extra [l] for the last time! </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  10. 10. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>vacuum </li></ul><ul><li>If your head is not a vacuum, remember that the silent [e] on this one married the [u] and joined him inside the word where they are living happily ever since. Well, the evidence is suggestive but not conclusive. Anyway, spell this word with two [u]s and not like &quot;volume.&quot; </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  11. 11. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>weather </li></ul><ul><li>Whether you like the weather or not, you have to write the [a] after the [e] when you spell it. </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
  12. 12. English Item 01-10 <ul><li>weird </li></ul><ul><li>It is weird having to repeat this rule so many times: [i] before [e] except after...? (It isn't [w]!) </li></ul>www.upcatreview.com 100 Most Often Misspelled Words in English Source: yourDictionary.com
