Many people do not know you can spell jail like gaol and it is completely correct! There are other ones like American people spell colour, color, and in my mind that just sounds like collar. Anyway, post your spelling confusions below, and the next person says how they would spell it and if they agree.

I will start it off with gaol.

How about these...

There - They're - Their

and

Your - You're - Yore (Days of)

and

The knights are here. Plural noun.
The knight's sword. Singular possession.
The knights' round table. Plural possession.

and

Color - Colour

Theater/Center - Theatre/Centre

My 7 cents. :smile:

Most people on this website can't spell for sh*t. I think you're asking the wrong people.

Wander and wonder seems to be a bit of a challenge... ;)

I'm also puzzled by the amount of times I see people write break instead of brake, is it really that difficult??

Sometimes, to make myself feel better, I pretend this actually makes sense. Like it's referring to "a break in the action/taking a break" or that something is technically "breaking" in a non-harmful sense. But that's just denial on my part. At least it's better than the countless enthusiasts who fail to use the word "ridden"...
