Subject: Re: Commonly misspelled words?

Those of you interested in Bethany Dumas's query about commonly misspelled

words might be interested in Christine Naxwell's book, THE PERGAMON

DICTIONARY OF PERFECT SPELLING (1977). This splendid resource book has

been more or less put out of business by automatic spell-checkers and

electric dictionaries, but it is still an interesting work and

potentially a valuable teaching aid.
