Can you spell.......?

I've seen so many people spell PREGNANT like this---PREGNATE
It drives me nuts! Sorry if that's snarky, but c'mon people! Educate yourselves a little bit!
What other words do you see often misspelled?

  • I can spell but sometimes I just can't type. LOL!!! I do agree that some people just need to reread what they write before submitting and they will catch their errors.

    "In there room" should be "In their room".

  • As long as I can understand what they are saying I could care less. What bothers me is when someone is adding their own spelling to try and make the word look unique. I can't figure out what the heck they are trying to say or they are trying to abbreviate the wrong way and with funky spellings. Those kind of questions I pass.

  • I'm a terrible speller. I admit it. Do I have time to sit and do drills to improve my spelling? I could probably find the time. Will I? No. I do try to use spell check though.

  • Misspelled words don't bother me too badly if I can understand the gist of what they are trying to say.
    It's the slang that bothers me the most such as "baby daddy" or other strange words and phrases.
