How Good Are You At Spelling?
The Telegraph has published a list of 50 common words Britons have problems to spell.These are some excerpts from the article on "The Telegraph":
Researchers who studied 2,000 adults found that more than half had problems spelling commonly used words.
The research, commissioned by the television channel Nick Jr. UK to mark its new literacy-based show, Wallykazam!, found that 40 per cent of people confessed that they rely on autocorrect technology to monitor their spelling.
More than one in five would panic if they were forced to abandon spellchecking technology and rely on their own knowledge. Nearly half of people admitted they judged others if their spelling was poor, while just under a quarter of people admit they have been embarrassed by a spelling mistake they made at work.
One in five said they tended to Google a word to check its correct spelling.
