Daily Writing Tips Spelling Test 1

By Daniel Scocco

It took us some time, but we are finally up with another test, the Spelling Test 1.

Daily Writing Tips Spelling Test

Spelling mistakes represent a common problem on the Internet. Sometimes just one letter separates two words with completely different meanings. Other times we end up transposing a vowel, and the result is hardly noticeable by the eye. Regardless, you should make sure that spelling mistakes are not crippling your writing, and this test is a good opportunity to do so. Here is a teaser:

  • The How-To Geek

    Question five has a weird answer…

  • Daniel Scocco

    How come Geek? People forget to eat once in a while also πŸ™‚ .

  • M

    i has the 95% skor

  • Sharon

    100%. That was fun!

  • –Deb

    I got a 100%. My 5th grade teacher would be so proud (grin).

    (And, “cUmpliments?” Tee!)

  • Daniel Scocco

    Deb, I was out of ideas on that one πŸ™‚ .

  • Karen

    95%. I knew I wasn’t sure about “embarrassment!”

  • elkit

    I got 95%, “allright/alright/all right” always trips me up.

  • Charlie Rapple

    I was lucky to get 100% as I had to make a guess on “earnest payment” – this concept/terminology does not exist in the UK!

  • Akhil

    75% πŸ™

    BTW, in Q2, option 1 and 4 are the same.

  • Daniel Scocco

    Akhil, they are not.

  • Farinha


    I guess it’s not too bad, considering English is not my mother tongue.

    Missed the “all right” and the “embarrassment” ones.

  • Silicon

    I scored %100, because I knew ‘all right’ would be the answer, however, I think alright should have word status

  • Thomas GvL

    95%, embarrassment got me πŸ™‚

  • David in San Antonio

    I scored 100. Looks as if those years as a copy editer payd off!

  • David in San Antonio

    elkit, there was a restaurant here in town that once had a neon sign above the entrance that read, “Is everything alright?” I would go in and say, “No, it isn’t,” but the owner wasn’t amused.

  • Bobbi-lee

    I got number 13 wrong, but that is only because I have never used that word before.

  • Shankar Ganesh

    Yes, I wasn’t sure of ’embarrassment’. But now I know it, thanks to the test!

  • guardian angel

    I cannot believe I had an 80%. I think I should already use eyeglasses or join my kids in school.

    That was a very entertaining spelling review, though.

    Thanks for this.

  • Timothy

    As a non-native English speaker, I say, it’s not too bad. πŸ˜‰

  • Renee

    95% but I’m not embarrassed about it! πŸ™‚

  • Neil Kosterman

    95% – fun.

  • Roshawn

    90% here. πŸ™‚

  • Jaguar

    95% — I’m so embarassed! πŸ˜‰

  • Cathy in NZ

    challenging a tad as my NZ english is not quite the same as your American english

  • Kate Jones

    90%, and since English is not my native tongue I was pleasantly ‘surpised’.
    I wonder if non-native speakers pay more attention to spelling/grammar differences (its/it’s, you’re/your) sometimes?

  • Bernie Zimmermann

    It was interesting to take this test because I saw so many of the errors I encounter on a regular basis at work. However, I know that if any of the offenders took this test, their score wouldn’t quite be indicative of their tendencies, because they’d be explicitly focusing on the right answers. When they aren’t, though, it’s a free-for-all.

    Good test, nonetheless, though. I got a 90%. I know I got the “alright” one wrong, and I think I must have gotten the “embarrassing” one incorrect as well.

  • SEO Basic Guide

    I’ve got 85% to

    It’s not to bad for a non English speaking person wow πŸ™‚

  • T.VilaΓ§a

    Not that bad. 95%.

    Ok, now you fine people willing to make the world speak better English, could you guys please give me a tip on ‘alright’?

    Of course I know it came from ‘all right’. But what’s the deal? Why is the form ‘alright’ wrong? I thought it was actually more common than the separeted one. Does it sound/ look really that bad ?( I’m not a native speaker as well, so it sounds ok to me).

    One more reason:
    If I say ‘the answers were all right’ there’s no doubt. All of them were right.
    But when I want to use it as a adjective?
    Like in ‘It’s alright to improvise.’
    Can I use it as an adverb?
    Like in ‘I’m doing well’ = ‘I’m doing alright’ ?
    Enlighten me on that please!
