Thankfully, we’re not alone. The following are some of the most commonly misspelled words (ironically, “misspelled” is one of them).

1. Cemetery

Steven King ruined this word- and the prospect of ever burying our pets anywhere- for everyone forever.

2. Squirrel

If there are two r’s, surely there should be two l’s. And what letters make up the sound “sqwuh”? It just doesn’t feel right.

3. Mediterranean

Stupid Latin cognates getting in the way of Googling my vacation.

4. Restaurant

Unlike the others, this one’s tough to replace with an easier word as well.

5. Judgment

The letters D, G, and M should never be next to each other.

6. Embarrassment

“Facepalm” will work just fine instead.

7. Jewelry

8. Definitely

9. Cologne

This one is infamously disastrous but, thankfully, not that common.
