when i was little i overheard my older cousin say that he had to write a letter for english. Well being 4 at the time i thought that he was inventing a letter (as in a letter of the alphabet). i couldnt wait till i was in high school and got to invent my own letter. its name was going to be anzy and look like a spiral.

When I was little, I used to write a lot of my letters backwards. This caused confusion when I wrote a letter to my dad whilst he was working away that started 'dear baddy...'

I don't know how long I thought this, but I thought the part of the alphabet that goes "l m n o p" was really "elemenno p" , and i thought P was the most special letter because it had a word in front to describe it.

I used to (and still do) classify all the colors, abc's, and even numbers into either male or female. For example, a, s, and z are the only female abc's! Red, pink, orange, yellow, and white are girls, and any number that ends with 2, 3, 5, or 8 is a girl! Everything else is a male. Lol :)

when I was around 3 years old I was convinced that the alphabet went like this;
A,C,D,C, F and G. ache 'n jakey (or at least I sounded like that) L,and don't forget the P, Q or S, tee-e-vee, double-your X, then the Zex.

no matter what anyone told me It was always like this. My mother evan tryed puting a tape of someone singing the alphabet in my room when I went to sleep. I would I always sing along to it, (in my own way of corse!)

I swear this is completly true and my parents have it on tape. Strangly enough I knew the french alphabet perfectly (I am Canadian) but I didn't knew the proper english one until I was about 6.

Today I teach english to middle school children and this is always a good story to tell the children. :)

When I was little and had just started school, I believed I could spell any word by just sounding out the first few letters and then saying the rest of the word as normal. I'd march around the house proudly yelling, "Listen, Daddy, I can spell table! T-A . . .bull!" I can't remember how long this went on before I learned real spelling, but until then I was convinced that I was really smart and that my way was just as good as using all the letters.

I thought the alphabet had only 24 letters until I was 11. I heard everywhere that it had 26, but I thought they were all errors.

My name startes with an "E" and when I was learning to write my name, I thought that after you 'made' the vertical line, and the line on top of it and the line on the bottom, instead of just putting in one more line across the middle of my capital "E'"s I thought you were supposed to squeeze as many lines in between the top and bottom as possible...I eventually went into kindergarten and one of the first things my teacher asked me was "Erica, why does your "E" look like a comb?!"
...I was so embarrassed that I had been doing it wrong for so long...(and here I thought all along that I could do it better than anyone else...after all, they could only fit ONE line between the tops and bottoms of thier "E'"s!!)

I used to think that an explanation mark only had a dot at the bottem because they were normally at the end of a sentence and it was the full stop. If there was an explanation mark in the middle of a sentence, it would just be the stick.

i had heard the word naive before and knew what it meant, but whenever i saw it written i thought it was a completley different word, pronounced like 'nave'. i beleived this for a very long time, until finally i was reading or something and suddenly it clicked that it was the same word! sadly that was only about a month ago

When I was a kid learning how to read and write, I thought "K-N-E-W" was how you spelled the boat("CANOE"). Hey, if the "K" wasn't silent....
