Correct Spelling Speaks Volumes!

In a previous post we looked at 15 words that are commonly misspelled.

Call me old fashioned, but I believe that correct spelling and punctuation still matter. It has been said that the ability to correctly put together words from letters is an essential part of successful writing. If one is confident in spelling, one is usually confident in all areas of literacy. Research has documented that reading, writing, spelling and comprehension are skills that are closely related.

Good spelling leads to good communication. With accurate spelling we can understand the story. Good spelling avoids confusion with the text. Writing with proper spelling and intent makes everything clear.

It turns out that this was a popular article. This prompted me to take a look at more words that are frequently misspelled.

I hope you enjoy reading this list and you find it helpful and somewhat humorous.

Calender should be Calendar

Tommorrow should be Tomorrow

Dissappear should be Disappear

Deteroriet should be Deteriorate

Arguement should be Argument

Wensday should be Wednesday

Occured should be Occurred

Que should be Queue

Thier should be Their

Twelth should be Twelfth

Sieze should be Seize

Nieghbor should be Neighbor or in Canada Neighbour

Noticable should be Noticeable

Convinient should be Convenient

Beggining should be Beginning

So what do you think of this list? Just yesterday I could not spell the word TWELFTH for the life of me. I had a mental blip. I also commonly have trouble spelling the word deteriorate. Thank goodness for online dictionaries and spellcheck.

I think it is safe to say that we all aspire to be excellent writers. Correct spelling instills trust in our audience. Its lends credence to our ability to express ourselves; it speaks to our expertise on a subject. It often reveals our level of education and sophistication.

I believe the more I write the more my spelling improves. I hope this is true, and I hope it is the same for you.

Happy writing!
