There's a particularly vicious spelling test at the Guardian, containing not obscure words which might stick in the memory because they are odd, but those ubiquitous words I, and presumably most others, struggle with routinely. No matter how many times I check, I can never remember the correct spelling of 'separately'. Or is it 'seperately'? Take the test!
As it happens, I scored 21/23. Both of my failures were genuinely surprising - I was sure they were spelled differently, so I've learned something today. I wonder if I'll remember....
