* There is no N in "dilemma". It's a direct loan word from Greek (''di''--"two", ''lemma''--"proposition"), yet [[http://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-dil1.htm it often gets spelled]] as "dilemna", probably because people mistakenly put it in the same class as other words with the "-mn-" construct where the N is silent ("column", "autumn"). It's been happening for a while, too. Daniel Defoe used "dilemna" in ''Literature/RobinsonCrusoe''.

# On the other hand, a mistyped word, proper noun, or even valid English word that isn't part of the dictionary (for whatever reason) can get "corrected" to something utterly preposterous, especially if the spell checker is set to "autocorrect". This variant is called the Cupertino Effect after numerous instances of "cooperation" being replaced by "Cupertino" in documents by early spellcheckers because they didn't recognize "cooperation" (even though they did recognize "co-operation") and "Cupertino" was the closest match it could find in its dictionary.[[labelnote:Trivia]]"Cupertino", an unremarkable small town in California, was in these spellcheckers' dictionaries because Apple Computer happens to be headquartered there. The link with "cooperation" was the misspelling "coopertino".[[/labelnote]]

* A radio ad for the Motel 6 chain features [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Bodett Tom Bodett]] (the "Good Idea, Bad Idea" guy from ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'') using his smartphone to type up the ad. His phone's auto-correct feature goes UpToEleven by replacing correctly spelled words with other correctly spelled words that sound similar.
