How's your spelling? Mine used to be kick-ass but I've noticed that it's slipping a bit.
How about the words that trip you up constantly? How much do you love spell check?
Every single time I spell niece or receive I have to repeat, "i before e except after c."
How about principal vs principle? The person in the school office is your "pal." That helps.
Angel vs angle. I have to say the word "gel" out loud or embarrassing things happen.
Attendance, evidence, etc. I'm constantly asking myself if it's "ence or ance?"
Naturally all these issues happen when I'm not on the 'puter.
Can you imagine trying to tackle this fickle language if you were born in another country? Americans have enough trouble with it!
Which ones give you fits? What are your tricks? Any rhymes/songs involved?
