Spelling misatkes (cough)


I’m trying to train myself to stop misspelling these words:

  • acknowlege → acknowledge
  • discernable → discernible
  • existance → existence
  • eshew → eschew
  • maintanance → maintenance
  • vaccum → vacuum
  • vechile → vehicle

My success rate thus far is hovering around… 50%? I’m at the point now where I remember both spellings, but forget which one I’m supposed to be using.

Have I mentioned recently that I feel for people learning English?
