weird (wierd)
Breaking everyones favourite spelling rule i before e except after c the word weird is, well,

2. accommodate (acommodate, accomodate)

The easiest way to remember the two double letter pairings in accommodate is to remember that
this word accommodates a lot of letters.

3. handkerchief (hankerchief)
The lurking d in handkerchief can be remembered by thinking about the fact that these squares of
nose-blowing cloth fit in ones hand. Dont get confused by the shortened hanky! (Nor should you try
adding a d in there: handky is far from correct.)

4. indict (indite)
The silence c in indict (and related words indictment, indictable, etc.) baffles lots of people, both in its
spelling and its pronunciation.

5. cemetery (cemetary)
Though many are tempted, there is no a in cemetery. You might contrast the word with graveyard,
which has two as.

6. conscience (conscence, conscious)

The first step is to avoid confusing conscience a persons moral sense of right and wrong (noun)
and conscious aware and responding to ones surroundings (adjective). Once you clear that hurdle,
you need to make sure that science makes an appearance in your spelling.

7. rhythm (rythm, rhythym, etc.)

This notorious word boasts only a single vowel and y, at that! plus a couple of hs running amok.
The related word rhyme is only slightly easier.

8. playwright (playwrite)
Even though playwrights do write, the wright in this word actually refers to a builder, as in similar
words like shipwright. You can remember this by thinking of a playwright as someone who builds a
theatre experience.

9. embarrass (embarass, embaress)

This word unequivocally demonstrates that language has a sense of humour. Why else make the
word embarrass embarrassingly difficult to spell?

10. millennium (millenium)

The incorrect spelling of millennium with only a single n is very common, possibly because similar
words, such as millenarian and millenary, follow this single n pattern. When youre talking about the
millennial generation, take to care to keep that second n in there.

11. pharaoh (pharoh)

Given the worlds fascination with ancient Egypt, youd think that the word for their rulers wouldnt
present such a problem, but the sneaky ao in the second syllable is a tricky one.

12. liaison (liason)

Both liaison and liaise boast that tricky triple vowel, a gift from French.

13. convalesce (convalece)

The -sce ending in convalesce is a spelling difficulty that crops in several English words that have a
Latin origin, including acquiesce, coalesce, and incandesce.

14. supersede (supercede)

Derived from the Latin word supersedere, this word is frequently misspelled as supercede thanks to
the influence of words like accede and intercede.

15. ecstasy (ecstacy)

Ecstasy may turn to despair when you realize that youve assumed that the c at the start
of ecstasymakes a later reappearance.

16. Caribbean (Carribean, Caribean)

The Caribbean tropics may seem slightly less alluring once you realize how much trouble you have
spelling this name.

17. harass (harrass)

While harass may have two different pronunciations, it doesnt have two rs!

18. maintenance (maintainence)

Although maintenance often implies the maintaining of something, the word does not
have maintain in it.

19. pronunciation (pronounciation)

Even though the verb form of this word is pronounce, the noun pronunciation does not have that
o in the middle. Before writing the word out, you might try saying
both pronunciation and pronounce out loud and hear the difference yourself.

20. Arctic (Artic)

Although the pronunciation without the c sound is considered acceptable, the spelling still requires
that the c be present. (The same goes for Antarctica.)

21. occurred (ocurred, occured)

Make sure that you double both the c and the r when you use the past tense of occur! Many verbs
ending in a single r will take a double r in the past tense, such as recur, blur, and refer.

22. recommend (reccommend, reccomend)

Another double-letter kerfuffle, recommend might seem as though it deserves a second c, but the
word only has one.

23. deductible (deductable)

This word is one of many examples of -ibles and -ables that may easily be confused. Check out
Words ending in -able or -ible for help on figuring these out.
