A Common Spelling Error...

...that absolutely drives me up the wall is 'definate'. That's not how that word is spelled. It is as follows: d-e-f-i-n-i-t-e. Definite. Not 'definate' or 'defanate' or 'defanite', or anything else. 'Definite' is the only correct spelling. Thank you.

Here's a good site that addresses this sort of thing:

I have found it very helpful.

Funny, I was wrestinlg yesterday with the difference between definitely and definitively. Btw, if you have an interest in transcendentals, please check out Being and Quirkiness. :)
