Is there a word you just can't type correctly?
Posted by: archipirata

It is nearly impossible to type the word "existing" unless I stop and consciously and slowly peck each letter out. In the normal flow of typing, I type it as "exisitng" EVERY - SINGLE - TIME. I have tried to retrain my brain even typing it over and over again, but nope. It's the only word this happens on and it has been this way for years. Some neuron between my brain and finger is simply hardwired to spell it wrong. Anyone else experience anything like this?

I always stall when I try to type Hawaii. I can never get it right and will come to a complete stop when I make my attempt. I usually figure it out, but it completely interrupts my flow when typing.

Lately, it's "trust" and "trustee". Almost always I transpose the u and the s. These are word I frequently type, so it's very annoying.

I would be lost without spellcheck - 'existing' is one of many, many words that give me trouble. Once spellcheck became a thing, I completely gave up on trying.

Every one mentioned so far, and a lot of others. I'm also transposing a lot of spaces with the first letter in words so there're a lot of corrections needed when I type nowadays.

That would doom me.

I would guess I type "guitar" a minimum of 100 times a day.

I would have to quit my day job if I couldn't type it!

Any words that include "ion" (motion, notion) - I always end up typing the "o" before the "i".



It is what it is.

Well, rhythm is a tough one; it’s really missing the second “y”. Guard and guarantee I get right about 50% of the time (what’s with this “gu = g” stuff anyway?)

Acknowledge. Too many extraneous consonants.

Maintenance, which is what’s necessary to maintain something. (...plus diligence) (WTF?)

I could go on and on. English spelling just sucks. For the saak of the werld, we shud al just start speling foneticalee.

For words like that and those that qualify for your OP, I use TypeIt4Me (from the site, not the Mac App Store).

Well, not for all those words, but a great many.

Life is now too short to worry about mastering spelling, lol.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

'Judgment' always trips me up.

In fact, while typing the line above, I typed 'judgement' which is what I normally type.

even though judgment (without the e) is correct, it still looks wrong to me.

However, most of my errors are due to my less-than-supple fingers. The world should be glad I didn't become a surgeon like mom wanted.

I highlight the word, select "Search Google for..." and then it says, "Did you mean..." and I say, yes, I did!
