English changes very rapidly, which is one reason it's so hard to master — however, there's one particular word people use that's technically not even the right word.

That word, ladies and gents, is "renumeration." If you type it into Google, you're instantly asked if you meant "remuneration," which is a totally different word.

Google.com

People often use "renumeration" as an alternative word for "payment," but the word that they actually mean to use is remuneration.

(It should be noted that "renumerate" does appear in the Oxford English Dictionary as a variant of "remunerate" — and as a word meaning to enumerate again.)

And if you take a scroll through Twitter, you'll see lots of people using the wrong word.

Nope.

Btw, that renumeration is ~ $122,830,400 USD across 25k people, or around ~$5,000 p/farmer https://t.co/n7k2YYNLBM

Nah.

Rolling Stone's stage hands can't get no renumeration http://t.co/M5XS4d3X7r

No. No. No. No.

"In agencies, renumeration discussions curb around juniors or returning to work mothers." http://t.co/QaqyL6Tkuy @Anna_Iceberg @bandt

Hmm, no.

California utilities propose solar renumeration cuts, fixed and demand charges, and more: http://t.co/MSJgOS9BmO

But people are slowly but surely realizing the error of their ways.

Apparently it's spelled remuneration not renumeration! Who knew?Well a lot of people I guess. All these years I've been remuneratin' wrong!

I'VE BEEN SPELLING REMUNERATION AS RENUMERATION FOR MY WHOLE LIFE????!!!!!!!!!
