I used to think that letters each had their own personalities, and that the small letters were baby versions of big letters. A was a girl, and B was a boy for some reason. Q was an O that had a penis. My child imagination was really strange!

When I was little I already knew how to read, and was incapable of talking without spelling out the words in my head (and still am). So, naturally, I thought 'tongue' was spelled T-U-N-G. Then when I was asked to read a book at the library to the other children, I pronounced 'tongue' like "tung-yoo", then the lady corrected me and said "Tongue."

I used to think that there was a letter called elemento P, because in the alphabet song they sing "H-I-J-K-elemento P", and i wondered what "elemento" meant!

I used to think that there were 2 N's in the alphabet (X, Y, N, Z) and i wondered why they did that. A few years later, i discovered they said "and" not "N"

I used to believe that 'musician' and 'magician' were the same words. I honestly could not tell the difference. Maybe a part of me knew that music was magical.

Not knowing the word "yield" as a child, I initially thought this was how one spelled "y'all". I figured the signs on the road were put there by the city to be welcoming to tourists, though it seemed like a poor strategy to me personally.

I used to believe that the word "world" was spelled and pronounced "waild". I may have misheard it but caught the meaning. I was only corrected when I asked if the road we lived on was connected to all the other roads in the waild.

I used to believe that the word "little" had five letters. Maybe it was because most of the letters in it were thin, or because the two t's blended together. Writing "litle" always looked wrong to me, but I didn't know why.

You know how a bunch of people on this section have posted beliefs saying that they used to write the letter E with as many horizontal lines as they wanted? Well, my sister used to do something similar to the letter S. She thought the letter S could go back and forth as many times as she wanted. She has an S in her name, so she would write her name with a weird scribble instead of an S. If you've ever drawn random zig-zags in your journal while bored in class, it looked just like that, only smaller.

As a kid I believed that the word "artificial" was actually "art official", as if artificial things were products of some kind of "official" art.

When I was very young, I thought that "the" was pronounced "thee", and if you meant "th-uhh", you had to spell it "th".

Currently, an excellent speller.

For most of my life I spelled "father" as "farter". Why did no one correct me, especially my very own farter?!?

When I was in 2nd grade, I thought once you got to 3rd grade you knew how to spell all the words in the English language. That's why I always asked the 3rd graders at daycare for homework help!
