THE LANGUAGE OF THE EDITOR —
In keeping with our theme of editing, we have included two editing tests for our readers. The first involves spelling, and the second involves proofreading. A good dictionary or even a spell checker on the computer can prevent the writer from misspelling a word. However, the proofreader isn't so lucky. Despite the new technology, proofreading terms and the methods used in marking manuscripts remain the same. We have included the standard proofreader's marks used by authors and editors to help you in "correcting the errors" on the next page. Good luck on both!
The 50 words in this test are among the most frequently misspelled words in English. What's more, these words are usually misspelled the same way by everyone.
Can you spell the top 50?
Choose the correct spelling, a or b, for each word in the list below.
A below-average speller will get only 6 of the 50 right. The average speller will feel certain about the first 15 but have an even chance of being right on the rest. The superior speller will do well on the first 40 and after that will be wrong half the time. The perfect or near-perfect speller will know how to spell all 50 words. Words are listed in order of difficulty.
