Words beginning with dig...

"Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary." - Khalil Gibran

While "joy and pain and wonder" might be involved in the writing of a poem, how much exalted feeling do you associate with spelling? Plenty of pain might be involved, if you find spelling difficult. But experiencing joy while spelling seems rather unlikely. Perhaps wonder might be the most positive feeling you associate with spelling. You might, for instance, be curious about the reasons behind a particular spelling. Or you could be amazed by the way that two related words can still diverge in the way they are spelled. Maybe you will just find yourself experiencing mild surprise at the way some rules seem intended to be broken by the English language.
