Auto correct. Spell check. There are lots of reason why people can't spell words correctly. Technology is doing it for them! Maybe you're a person who can tell at a glance that a word doesn't "look right", and is misspelled. Of course, if you're hankering to take this quiz, then you may be someone who competed in Spelling Bees and realize the importance of correct spelling, usage, and the conjugation of a word.
Learning all there is about spelling never stops. There are new words to learn all the time, like" phishing", the act of using an email to get someone to send you their personal information.
Although technology has helped the world communicate with correct spelling, there is the good old dictionary that helps us do that as well. It breaks down the word phonetically, gives the origin of the word, defines it and uses it in a sentence for greater clarity. It also provides synonyms, antonyms, the root word and how to pluralize it. Today's online dictionaries do one better by providing voice samples of someone pronouncing the word. Still, no matter what tools you use, you need to be savvy enough to know when to use "whole" or "hole", or that you should use "i" before "e" except after "c".
Don't let spelling go out of style. Take this quiz now and show off your knowledge about the words around you!
