spelling test

Here’s a spelling test of commonly misspelled words for you to test your spelling prowess. I got 14/15 right, missing #11.

  1. I got 11/15…needs improvement. I missed 1,4,12,and 14. I don’t care about #4 because I’ve never had one. It was good to correct myself on the other ones though.

  2. Now that I look at number 11, I feel silly.

    On any that I wasn’t sure of, I chose the non-phonetic one. My reasoning was that if people often spell it wrong, it’s probably not spelled the way it sounds.

  3. I got 14/15. The one I misspelled was minuscule (the incorrect spelling was miniscule).

  4. I got 13/15. My ego is hurt. Actually, I’ve become quite fond of gdict as often a word doesn’t quite look right, so I type it in for a quick lookup. This dependency doesn’t help my spelling abilities.

  5. You always seem to do good on tests ;)

    On the Phishing test, I did horrible on it!

  6. I missed dumbell . . . dumbbel . . . dumbbell . . . rats. I’m still missing it. Got the rest, though. Guess I’ll just have to resort to calling people pea-brains instead of dumbells . . . er, dumbbels . . . ugh. Here we go again . . . .
