Help with Spelling


#1

Hi! I have a spelling bee contest coming up and I would like to know as much words as possible. Pls post any words that you find hard to spell, has spelling different than the pronunciation or words that r easily spelled wrong.


#2

I know it’s basic but I get weird wrong.

Here is also some other words:
Accommodate
Handkerchief
Cemetery
Rhythm

You may find some of these easy depending on your level of spelling.

Ooh I just had a spelling bee! But, don’t you have a study book or word list?

cacciatore — hard because it is pronounced like this.
arrhythmia
subpoenaed — pronounced like this.
barrister — that was the word I came second to. :unamused:
extraterrestrial
tabbouleh
xenon — ZEN-on
miniature
Wednesday — Idk if that is hard but, always good to know.

I was in my elementary school’s spelling bee in third grade, and I got out on the word Chesapeake… It still haunts me to this day.

The one I ALWAYS hate spelling is diarrhoea (I don’t know if you’re American. In which case, the spelling would be different because that’s the British way), so it’s really thankful that it’s not something that I need to use on a daily basis.

I also have a notebook that has loads of difficult, commonly misspelt words in it, so I’ll give you a few from there:

Absence
Acquainted
Acquiescence
Amateur
Ascend
Connoisseur
Courtesy
Decipher
Definite
Eccentric
Exhilarate
Foreign
Gauge
Fulfilment
Knowledgeable
Manoeuvre
Sovereign
Supersede
Vivacious
Vicious
