25 Commonly misspelled words — how many would you get right?

Spelling comes easy for some of us, but some words are just a little more difficult to get just right. Do you know how to spell these 25 words?

The English language is a mysterious entity that doesn’t really have a whole lot of “rules” that can be applied across the whole thing. For example, some words totally follow the “i before e, except after c” rule — others have no interest in following that rule and do their own thing (see a few examples below). This leads to quite a few words that don’t really quite make the grade in regards to spelling — in other words, they’re easy to screw up. In fact, “misspell” could easily fit here itself!

Here are 25 words that are commonly misspelled, and how to do it right.
