    this is definitely right

    In the interests of better communication -- we are, after all, snobs of sorts -- the most misspelled word in this forum is definitely.

    Most often it pops up as definAtely. :-[

    Think of definite + ly.

    Well observed. It reminds me of how my own ability to spell has diminished since leaving high school. I did an engineering degree at university and they dont really care how bad your spelling or grammar is, as long as you understand the mathematical equations or concepts. Four years of this did nothing to help my spelling and grammar though!

    I left high school being able to spell every word I knew, but now I struggle... yikes... this is definitely a worry.

    In the interest of clarity (and a bit of fun), I like the way you mispelt definitely in the first sentence, and used the American spelling of spelt. ;D

    Well done, oranges and cigars for Glen, you spotted my deliberate error (says he very red-faced and trying to salvage some pride!! Not.) Youre right, I stand corrected. A typeo, now corrected.

    (Id typed difinitely)
