DiS Social Board Spelling Bee

Here it is folks, the game you’ve been waiting for.

The way it works?

One DiSer replies to this thread with a word they would like another DiSer to spell, @ing them in. That DiSer must then reply to that word with the correct spelling. If they get it right, they win a point. If not, they are eliminated.

You may also ask the other DiSer to use the word in a sentence to give it context in order to help you before answering.

Once all users signed up to the boards have been eliminated, we have a winner!

Good luck DiS!

Spelling tests don’t work guys, it’s far better to learn the spelling rules and try to apply them in your writing. Typically learned words for a spelling test will be forgotten a week later. If you must do tests I suggest revisiting words every few weeks so they can be stored in long term memory.

Anyway, @incandenza your word is embarrassment.
It’s a tricky one as there are some double consonants hidden in there!!

Think there’s been a mix-up. My contract says I’m only allowed to spell words of 9 letters or fewer

I still have trouble spending wednesday and february, I think it is the world that is wrong

ASIDE:

One thing I pride myself on is well dece spelling. I can do that shit.

My boss wants us all to install and use Grammerly, so that there are no mistakes on the websites/emails/etc. I don’t want to, because I think if I start using it, I’ll overly rely on it, and stop thinking about how to do things properly myself. The problem isn’t me, it’s the other fuckers who aren’t so well dece at the spelling, but I still think it’s a bad thing for humanity (like autocorrect) that’ll stop people putting the very small effort into learning how to do things properly, and putting effort into things.

What are your thoughts on this @ma0sm, @Antpocalypsenow and the rest of the community.drownedinsound.com community?

I think it’s fine to use tools to help you do things like spelling and that. Doesn’t matter does it really.
