Not only is it already October (what happened to SUMMER?), it's also already time to once again test your spelling skills! Along with the change of season, as you no doubt noticed in the header, I've changed the name of the weekly "Misspelled Words" feature to "FUN FRIDAY'S SPELLING CHALLENGE!"
And...here are today's words. The answers are below, and of course you know...
1. annoint, annoynt, anoint
2. camouflage, cammoflage, camoflauge
3. deterrance, deterrence, deterence
4. explaination, explanaition, explanation
5. hypocresy, hypocrisy, hypocracy
6. nauseous, nauseus, naucious
7. putrify, putrefy, putrefie
8. subpoena, subpena, supoena
9. tariff, tarriff, tarrif
10. eukalale, ukulele, ukalele
onometopia, onomatopoeia, onomatopoea
you get a GOLD STAR!
Crystal Clear Proofing PURPLE STAR!
then you get a GOLD STAR and a PURPLE STAR!
Now THAT'S not only exciting, but one heck of an incentive, right?
(Just agree with me, it's Friday...)
(For the definition of today's bonus word just click FreeDictionary.com)
NEW FEATURES COMING TO CRYSTAL CLEAR PROOFING: In addition to differences between words, which word to use when...(otherwise known as the "techie posts"), and Fun Friday's Spelling Challenge, I'm tossing around some ideas for other posts; for example, one may have to do with words that are uncommon and you don't hear or use often - such as today's bonus word.
Another idea is to write a one or two paragraph story, complete with a few errors, and your challenge would be to find them!
I'll be working out the details and considering different options over the next few days. If any of you have any ideas or things you'd like to see here, please - by all means mention them! In the meantime...
It not only lights up your face, but shines upon those you share it with!
It's an easy way to spread some HAPPY - and it just makes you feel GOOD!
