i have always spelled "separate" S-E-P-E-R-A-T-E, eventhough someone has corrected me, i still remain mis-spelling it on purpose coz i think this is the way it should be spelled.

When I was learning how to write in english, I wondered what language I was writing in before I learned how to write... I thought maybe I wrote in chinese, or welsh.

I was a horrible speller during elementary school (still am). I remember being very upset with my mother because she didn't convey to me that the word "together" was spelled To-Get-Her.
After I learned that it was spelled that way I thought it meant that.

A friend of mine only realized about a year ago (when she was 12) that a laptop computer was called that because it sits on your lap. And I didn't realize until 6th grade that the Beatles was spelled funny because it includes the word Beat...I just never thought about it...

I read alot as a child and there was one word that intrigued me: IDIOT.
For the longest while I pronounced it I-Dot. Somehow it did not occur to me that a word I used in everyday language spelt like that until about 12 years

When I was about four years old, I remember exclaiming to my mother that I could spell my first word. Excitedly I told her "I can spell relief... R O L A I D S." (from a popular TV ad at the time)

My mother was so amused by this that she didn't bother correcting me. I continued to demonstrate my feat to other relatives until I finally found someone willing to end my blissful ignorance.

one time in school, aged about seven, i was looking at the 11 year old kids' work on the wall. i always had a knack for spelling and i was disgusted to spot spelling errors in the work on the wall. i thought children of that age should really be able to spell perfectly, they'd had long enough to learn...

When I was growing up, my sisters and I were not allowed to "pee" or "poop, we always had to do #1 or #2, so when I started school and had to learn the alphabet, I thought when we said L, M, N, O, P that we were really saying "elemental P" as in an something to do with "elementary school".

I once noticed in a book that the author had used a dashes at the end of some lines. Not realising this was just used if a whole word couldn't fit on the end of a line and had to be continued on the next, I proceeded to write an essay with dashes at the end of every line. My Teacher, Sister Isabelle, seemed to think I was trying to wind her up and shit hit my knuckles with a ruler. I must have only been about 5. Nuns!

When I was in second grade I was just learning how to spell and my Mom would pick my sister and I up from school and then she would pick my brother and is friend up and I used to play with his fingers because they were so long and I thought they were so much fun. Well one day he was going to be moving away and my mom thought it would be a good idea to write him a note for him to remember me by and so I did. It read Dear Nathan's Friend,
I really wish you do not have to go but you do. So I write you letter saying that I just wanted to let you know that I liked palying with your feggers in mom's van on the way to your house after skool. please do not forget me.
Love lot,
so n so
and for the longest time I thought that is how you spelled "Fingers". Until my twin sister told me that was not how to spell it. to this day i still get teh line palyed with your feggers.
