We all have certain words that cause us to pause when writing them down, they make us hesitate and wonder whether or not we’re spelling it correctly. Then there are those maddening words that we struggle to spell over and over, time and time again. No matter how many times you look it up, or see auto-correct change it from red-underlined and marked as wrong to right, you just can’t remember how the heck to properly spell it. And forget about sounding those out or applying any grammar rules you may have up your sleeve. Those words are impossible to spell because they have some silent ‘e’ or ‘k’ or ‘c’ somewhere in them and they can’t be rationally spelled from their pronunciation. Without auto-correct, you’d be screwed.
