Are you excited or exited to be playing this quiz? There are many common mistakes in spelling.The English language is not the easiest to spell correctly! Although you can learn all of the rules and practise and practise your spellings, there are still a number of pitfalls. First, there are the words which do not follow the rules. Then there are all the homophones in the English language, like "their", "they're" and "there". There are also words which change according to grammatical usage: "practise" is a verb, whereas "practice" is a noun; "affect" is a verb, whereas "effect" is a noun. Then there are different spellings used in different countries: "leveled" or "levelled", anyone? Add to that the fact that sometimes multiple spellings are accepted, such as "spelled" and "spelt"! How anyone can spell well is a miracle!
This quiz tests your ability to spot common errors involving confusion between similar words. For instance, is "desert" or "dessert" edible? Is it a "werewolf" or a "wherewolf". Only joking, there's no such thing as a "wherewolf"!
See if you can find the correct spelling of the following words.
