It's belatedly occurred to me as the originator of this post that the word I always spell wrong is - er - wrong!

I almost always can't spell 'occasion' without auto correct. For some reason, I feel the 's' needs equal treatment with the 'c'...

I study French, so I always end up spelling apartment with two ps (it's appartement in French). I write about apartments in French more often and I'm used to French having extra vowels, but not consonants.

I ussualy have problems with words ending in -sion, -tion, and -cion. I'm from a Spanish-speaking country, which only operates in -sión and -ción (works similar to English here), so those words ending in -tion always give me problems.

Connecticut (as in the U.S. state.)

I omit that second "c". (Has it always been there? I can't believe I've been spelling it wrong my whole life.)

Talking of US states, spelling the one that Boston is in gives me nightmares!

amateur, conscientious, nauseous
There was a fourth one but I must have so much anxiety about spelling it, it ran away before I could attempt to type it.

I can not for the life of me ever remember how to spell restaurant without using spell-check or Google. I pride myself on my spelling abilities, but restaurant will be the death of me.

I really struggle with this one too! And I always want to put 'each other' as one word, to the point that my phone now autocorrects to that instead.

Good old auto-correct isn't as much of our friend as we think! :lol:

I swear the spelling of that word drives me up the wall; the first A is always the problem since it never seems to be pronounced in a way to indicate it belongs there so I forget it.

I often get mixed up with how many double letters are in the word Misissippi .... Uh,Oh! There you go. I already misspelled it, hahaha!
My AutoCorrect should always be on the go.

MISSISSIPPI, got it right now. :techie-studyingbrown:

I always spell definitely wrong. If it wasn't for spell check I would be in so much trouble.
