  1. Weird – I’m not seeing any pattern with thes, for example, that Things would get mispelled due to regional dialects

    1. The word “weird.” After spelling numerous much-harder words, I lost the 5th Grade Spelling Bee after mentally reviewing the “I before e…” meme and misspelling it “weird.” I’ve had a mental block about the word for 6 decades since.

      1. I lost the 5th grade spelling bee too on the word especially. I’ve never forgotten how to spell it

  2. As a Wisconsinite, I’m a little embarrassed by our word.

    I’m also embarrassed to admit that I work in public education but frequently have to double check how to spell “attendance.”

  3. I always have to stop and think if I spelled congratulations right. For some reason I want to put a d in place of the 1st t.

  4. I’d like to see the map of which states more prevalently make nouns plural by adding apostrophe-s.
