Do you ever wonder how we ever survived without spell check and auto-correct in our lives?

Is There A Dictionary In Your House?

If you are young enough, you won't remember a time that you didn't have a machine to help you with your spelling. There was a time when every household in America owned a Merriiam-Webster Dictionary. Whether we were playing scrabble or writing an essay for school, the dictionary was always just an arms-length away.

Even the Best Spellers Have Challenges

Of course, today things have changed. We have great tools like spell check, auto-correct, Grammarly, and to help us navigate those difficult-to-spell words in everyday life. Even the worst of spellers can type an error-free email or text message with a little technical assistance.

Even though we have all of these great resources to help us eliminate spelling errors in our work and daily communication, we still have trouble with particular words. Everyone has their own struggle. For example, a couple of words I personally struggle with are recommend and acknowledgment. I always have to double-check my spelling.
