What’s the one word in the English language that you misspell the most?

I received quite a few responses to that question on my Edit This® Facebook page awhile back – and I thought I would share them with the readers of this magazine.

Even after all these years as a professional writer and editor, there are more words out there that I stumble on than I care to admit. It often takes slowing down my typing or even spelling the word out loud as I type to make sure I get it right.

Interestingly, Google Trends released a list last year of the most commonly misspelled words, and the word “beautiful” topped their list. Other words they listed included schedule, Connecticut, sincerely, vacuum, and consequences. My favorite on their list was a word almost none of us can spell, which is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
