Researchers at Collins Dictionaries have identified some of the most commonly misspelled words in the English language. At the top of the list is supercede, closely followed by liquify. The correct spellings are supersede and liquefy. I confess I've been misspelling those two words my entire life.

In other misspelling news, Loren Coleman suggests that an early clue the Georgia Bigfoot body was a hoax was that the hoaxers consistently misspelled Bigfoot, spelling it "Big Foot." One of them had a towing company called "Big Foot Towing." Loren writes:

When someone is alluding to “Sasquatch,” but then spells it using two words that tells you something about that person. Perhaps they don’t really know too much about Bigfoot, or they only are trying to capture the power of the legendary stories but are not familiar with the history and research of the creatures.

Unfortunately for Loren, he himself didn't notice this clue early enough. (Thanks to Sandy!)

As Canadians, it is our solemn duty to add extraneous U's to as many wourds as poussible. Such as suupersede and liqueufy.

Strenght seems like more of a typo than a mispelling. Unless you're noticing this in handwriting.

I'm impressed at how you have a firm hold of the subject. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My Facebook blog site is in the very same niche as yours and my users would definitely benefit from a lot of the information you give on your site. Please let me know if this is not alright with you. Appreciate it!
