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!!
