There are a tons of common spelling errors in the English language. The ones that irk me the most are: Judgment govern and government environment jewelry mortgage privilege receive believe separate embarrass Are there any that annoy you? And one other thing that drives me nuts is when people say "Let me conversate with you!" Ugh! It's 'converse' people!

Hello there genihanna I hate the word February as it is hard to say how it is spelt, say it! See what I mean. I would hate it if someone said converste with you too as it is not correct but I am lucky that someone has not as yet said that to me, I think I would have to whince during the conversation if they did!!

I am probably guilty of all those. I am the worst speller. I try to use spell check reguarly but other times... I'm too lazy. Certainly I am now. I've been up for... hmm... 16 hours and counting. I apologize for the errors in this respond or any of the others(there are about a million in old responses...) which may have offended anyone. :)

I have to say I hate sentence structure errors more than spelling ones, with most spelling errors you can understand what is being written, but some sentences just do not make sense. With spelling as well there are often natioanl differences - consider judgment and judgement jewelry and jewellery

It annoys me when I commit them because I expect myself to correct things write since most of the words are being encountered everyday. Anyways, sometimes, when you are so used to wrong spelling, it gets into your system and it kinda make you feel a little d*mb.
