Words that you just can't spell right:

What are some words that you guys have trouble spelling it?

Mine is Nietzsche.

[up] GOD I had so much trouble with that word.
"Allah may guide their bullets, but Jesus helps those who aim down the sights."
Hi, I'm a talking door!
[up]Serious? Laby-rinth simple enough. I tend to second guess myself on doubles, like apparently. Also, "cally" endings, like in "fantastically", as it just sounds wrong somehow. And this is a terrible example, but the only one I could think of on the spot.

Banana will appear here inevitably, so an easy breakdown is simply ba-na-na, 1 B, 2 N's, 3 A's, got it?

I used to have trouble spelling "beautiful", and I always have to remember "B-E-A-U-tiful" for me to spell it right.
Remarkably Unremarkable
Literally. I always use literately.

It's usually vowel trouble since I herp derp a lot and rely on spell checker more than I should.

Judgment as judgement.

It's not my fault I think it's combining judge and ment together. Wait, yes it is.
I spread my wings, fly away. The wind sweeps me off my feet, blowing me away yeah. Trees whispering to me.

I'm feeling free now.

This isn't a spelling but a typo, but I keep mistyping "immortal" as "immportal" more than half the time.

As for actual misspellings, I can't think of any, but as a kid, I did not know how "restaurant" was properly spelled for a long time, because I kept spelling it as "restraunt" and every spellchecker ever only has the suggestion "restraint".

[up] Fun fact: I actually thought "baloney" was actually "bologna", another misspelling I had for a long time because it is a correct spelling of the wrong word and thus the spellchecker could not correct it.

Banned entirely for telling FE that he was being rude and not contributing to the discussion. I shall watch down from the goon heavens.

I don't have much trouble spelling words, I sometimes skip over a word when I type even though I read in my head.
"badass" doesn't anything in after used end fail be fine.

Nietzsche as well.

"Tour" still trips me up, also, despite being a really short word; sometimes "receive" but much less so.
Picture not related
"Weird". I always want to spell it "wierd". Thank god for Firefox spell check.

Oddly enough, "misspelled" - I always end up typing it with one s at first.

I still spell weird as wierd. Usually I can tell that a word 'looks wrong', but not that one, for some reason.
Be not afraid...
I think all the words I spell are weird and wrong looking.

Audience was a trouble to spell until I got used to the proper spelling. Same with appropriate.

And defense. It's tempting to use c instead of s.

Also license.

Seconding license. I can't tell the number of times I've misspelled it...

Also, difference.

Any word of three syllables or longer that ends in -ant, -ent, -ance or -ence.
