For The Last Time-- There Is No "A" In Definitely!

What is going on in this world? There have been no less than 16 posts on this board in the last two days with this misspelling. I’ve seen it at work more and more, written by doctors, no less.

My fellow Americans, and other peoples of the Earth: Definitely is spelled D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y. See, no A!

Please join me in wiping this abomination of egregious stupidity out of our society, and perhaps our great-grandchildren will only read about in it the archives, having never had to suffer through it first-hand.

Thank you.

I wonder how many other wrong spellings get over 30 million hits on Google?

…oh, wait, ‘google’ gets 2.7 billion :wink:


Why, you little!!

::strangles you::

No fewer. That’s one of MY pet peeves.

This is definitely one of my spelling demons.

For The Last Time-- There Is No “A” In Definitely!

I doubt that it’s really “for the last time.” The offense (and complaints about it) will be going on ad infinatum. :stuck_out_tongue:

My apologies. I pull this one occasionally. Definitely has always been a hard word for me to spell.

Is there an A in Anaamika?

Oh, sorry. I know that one, but it does slip my mind from time to time.

Me too. Along with ridiculous. I try not to but I type a whole lot faster then I spell check. Damn it, now I can’t remember the others words I almost always misspell.

Google checks my spelling almost all of the time though.

Separate. Douche bag. (If you are going to insult someone, at least spell it correctly! Or use simpler words, like “Bad man!”) Too, two, to. They’re, their, there. Stalks of asparagus, not stocks. Moot, mute. Jeanus, no shit, jeanus. I am not a grammar nazi, but oh, I could go on for hours…

Unfortunately, because those are all generally homophones, simply listing them doesn’t provide clarity to those who think that you can have to much stocks of aspareguss in they’re pantry.

So it’s a mute argument?

This hurts.

Also, pleeez, folks, it’s a pulpified gunshot wound track, not a tract.
