When I was little I thought that I had forgotten a letter of the alphabet somewhere between G and L and that unless I could remember what it was no one would be able to spell anymore.
I used to belive (in preschool) there were 2 N's in the alphabet. One in H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P and at the end Y,N,Z. I never understood why they put 2 N's in the alphabet, it seemed silly.
I used to believe that if you got all of the letters of a word such as "stop", it didn't matter what order they were in. So, on my first spelling test I was very upset with the teacher who marked my spelling of "ptso" wrong. I was convinced that all the letters were there, so I should get credit.
I used to believe as a child that a Communist and a Columnist were closely related, even one and the same.
One of my children used to believe that the Pulitzer Prize was spelled Pullet Surprise
I used to belive there were two N's in the alphabet, one after M and one before Z.
I used to believe that the letter P, in the alphabet song, was very special, because when you sung the song it sounded like you were supposed to say: ...H,I,J,K,"elemeno" P...(say it out loud). I thought the word "elemeno" meant something very special about the letter P. I later realized that I had been stringing the letters L,M,N and O into one sound...it's funny, cause it never occurred to me that those letters were not in my alphabet song, even though I knew they existed.
When I was little i thought that cursive was a grown-up language that was made up of just circles so when i wanted to send a parent a secret message i would put endless connected circles and got mad at my parent when they couldn't read it
I used to think that when people sang the alphabet and got to T,U,V,W,X,Y and Z. i thought and was a letter untill i was about 6.
u know how at the end of the abcs it goes now i know MY abcs?well,i used to think u had to take all the letters and rearrange them to make your own.
When I was young I did a cooking class, where we had to decorate a book in which we wrote all our recipes. I labelled mine 'My Cock Book'.
LA was Ellay
When I was just learning the alphabet, I thought there was an actual way to spell every letter in the alphabet. For example I though "X" was actually spelled ex.
I used to believe it was bombfire. Not bonfire. Yeahhh, I found out when I was 14, and nobody even corrected me.
When I was in preschool I was terrified of the letter "Z". When we practiced writing our letters I would come to the end of the alphabet, and start crying. I was scared because I was convinced I didn't know how to write it.
i used to think there were two n's in the alphabet. the normal one plus one in between y and z because when you say y and z it sounds like y n z
I remeber believing that all letters could be "spelt" - if it made a sound, it could be spelt into a comeplete word - like "W" would be "double-yew" So I asked my mom how to spell "k". she replied "K". I got angry with her and said "No, how do you SPELL it?" She said, again "K" this argument went on for quite a while. ^_^
When I was very little, instead of singing "W, X, Y, and Z" I would sing, "W, X, Y, N, Z" It wasn't until I was learing to print the alphabet that I learned that there were not, in fact, two N's in the alphabet. Now that I have kids I try very hard to leave out the "and" when I sing the ABC's. Really, I think a pause is sufficient, don't you? OH, and while were on the subject, it wasn't until I was an adult that I realized that the ABC's, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Baa Baa Black Sheep were all set to the same tune.
I used to believe there were two "N"'s in the alphabet. As in... L, M, N, O, P..... and X, Y, N, Z.
When I was about to go into preschool, my mom wanted to teach me the alphabet. One day as I was practicing my letters on a piece of paper, my older brother (he was about 13 or 14 at the time) told me that if you didn't make the line on your little k long enough, then the police would show up and send you to jail. I believed him.
