Let’s look at this scenario as a blogger. And a Writer.
You are scribbling down on a paper, smiling away and feeling good. As you pen down your thoughts, you suddenly started battling with a particular spelling. You write down the word but convinced yourself that it’s not the right spelling. No dictionary in sight, and your phone is far away. You kept guessing the right spelling and finally agree that you needed help. Help from the dictionary. Help from Mr. Google to ensure you got the word and meaning all very right.
I’ve experienced this many times. There are words and spellings that I can’t just keep to memory. I’d always have to spell check them to be sure. And these words are somehow complicated to deal with. Oh! Will I ever get those words right? Things that keep me up at night, haha! See some examples…
Recommend, commemorate, accommodate, millennium, reconnaissance, and renaissance. Recalcitrant, Expedite, Suffuse, Sodden, Circumspect, Spurious, Ingratiate, Coalesce, Bauble, Desiccate, Incorporeal, Abstruse, Magnanimity,
These words can be commonly misspelled hence the need to cross-check with the dictionaries or spell checkers. And these commonly misspelled words are aptly referred to as “spelling demons”. Now you can appreciate the dictionaries and spell checkers that “deliver” us from the snare of these demons. Well, speaking for myself.
What would life be without these online spell checkers?
We live a life of luxury and ease now. You don’t have to rack the brain too much again to find answers… Amazing, isn’t it?
Do you have words you struggle with too as you pen down your thoughts? Let’s hear your experiences!
Peace and Love!
