According to a new study, "definitely" is the most misspelled word in English
. (This might be the Queen's English, and not American English
though, since "manoeuvre" also made the list.)
Also on the list were broccoli, phlegm, bureaucracy, indict, consensus, unnecessary, sacrilegious and prejudice.
General opinion surrounding the poll seems to blame text messaging
for our inability to spell
. You know, because people are always texting the words "bureaucracy" and "sacrilegious." Spell check perhaps could shoulder a little blame, but typing OMG into your phone is not automatically the same thing as not being able to spell words correctly.The most irritating words and phrases in the English language. Book smart, street smart, or sweets smart? Take this quiz.
