    What word/s do you have a hard time spelling

    I can NEVER remember how to spell the word restaurant!! Every time that I go to type it I have to look it up I always want to spell it restaraunt or something like that

    I was an excellent speller when I was in school but it seems that that ability has atrophied a bit since then

    I also used to be excellent at spelling in school, however have since went downhilll and getting worse every year.

    These are some words I have a hard time spelling, and if they are spelled correctly it's purely coincidental!

    Diarrhea
    Chihuahua
    Muzzle
    Dachschand
    Rottweiller

    Most of them are words I have to write at work and it bothers me that I can't consistently spell them correctly because it's on a medical file and should be spelled properly.

    I have a hard time spelling anaesthesia, had to look it up again.

    junescrater716! It's medicine.

    What I don't understand is that some people mix up "then" and "than". It has entirely different meanings.

    Is it seperate or separate? I could look it up in the dictionary every day and I still wouldn't remember.

    Along the same lines..... I always have to look up stationary and stationery when I am using them in a sentence.

    1. Stationery is writing paper.
    2. Stationary is being fixed in one place.

    Now why can't I get that through my head?

    Oooooh, I always misspell restaurant, too! I just correctly learned how to spell "definitely" - from Mozilla's spell-checker- I used to spell it "definately." I'm fairly confident with my spelling, but nonetheless, I sure do appreciate spell-checker!
