10 Words You Need to Stop Misspelling

There are some words that are commonly misspelled that can feel like nails on a chalkboard to an editor. Now, when you see your friends use them, you can just point them to this cartoon image.

My favorite part has to be the explanation for the proper spelling of 'a lot'.
You don't write alittle, abunch, acanteloupe, aporkchop.
So, don't write alot.

Another way to remember words is to use the problem ones in a sentence. For example, if you have trouble with "its/it's" and "lose/loose," you can compose sentences like these:

It's a shame the team lost its division ranking.

A loose grip will make you lose at arm wrestling.
