There is one rule in English spelling: "there are no rules, there is only a dictionary". Thus, all of us who have learned this language, had to learn the proper spelling of each word, which is not easy.

Some of English speakers resort to dirty tricks in their attempt to keep this vocabulary in mind - they write words according to how they sound. Wrong! English spelling has nothing to do with sounds. Specially if the sounds you hear or make are a bit off from what they were when the word came to be, if your vowels sound similar to some others... and you get what you get.

There is an opinion out there (mine) that it is not by mere chance that the word for casting magic entanglement, and casting letters into words is the same: spell.

The words in these lists were sorted according to their correct spelling - any spelling error in the initial letters would throw it off its proper alphabetical position. The most common offenders, like misuse of its-it's, are not included here - they would just overload the pages.
