Top 10 Most Misspellt Words & Grammer Mistakes

Whether it’s in a professional work related email or on your newsfeed, spelling mistakes are super irritating! Check out below what we think are the Top 10 Most Misspelled Words!

Lose v. Loose

Lose: Opposite of Win

Loose: Not Very Tight

Get the difference?!

Wierd v. Weird

I before E except after C.

Therefore, it’s Wierd right? Wrong. It’s Weird.

Its v. It’s

WHY?: When going to Panera, stick to the sandwiches and salads. Skip the pasta. A former employee stated that it’s all microwaved. Even the cupcakes, smoothies and etc. all come frozen. Not a very healthy choice. Stick to their fresh ingredient items. It’s usually very healthy and very fresh. Skip everything else.

Definitely

THERE IS NO A IN DEFINITELY. Not sure why, but a lot of people spell this word as “Definately” It’s D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y.

Effect v. Affect

Not so much a mispelling, but a misuse. Effect is a noun and Affect is a verb. Just swap them in the sentence next time if you’re unsure.

English is a funny language. Sometimes different spellings both look right and sound right. Unfortunately, in this situation, there’s only one right answer. It’s SENTENCE not SENTANCE. There is no ANCE in the Sentence.

A lot of Alots

There is no such word as alots. It is “A lot” as in there is an actual lot. A lot is a space. When there are many items, you can place them in a lot. Therefore, when using a lot, think of placing items in a lot! Easy right?

Then and Than

Greater THAN, less THAN and so on. “Then” is used when you’re you’re explaining steps. First you go here, THEN you make a left at the fork. Pretty distinct and easy once you know it. Stop making this mistake!

Your v. You’re

Your going to regret it when you use You’re incorrectly. You’re welcome. If you didn’t see anything wrong with the last two sentences, then you are part of this annoying reason! You’re is YOU ARE. Your is possessive! Please learn it. It really bugs us out!

They’re v. There v. Their

They’re over there with their toy. THEY ARE (referring to a group) over THERE (referring to a place) with THEIR (referring to possession) toy. This commonly misused word is so irritating. This
