I know one that drives me crazy. When people spell the name Gonzalez as Gonzales. While Gonzales is how some people spell their last name, it's not how Tony spells it.

It's a good thing the word vacuum isn't a part of our daily chatter here on the Planet- can't imagine how many times that would be misspelled.

"Prolly" is more of an abbreviation, like, say, "dunno."

Cool, or is it kool, or is it kewl. That one drives me crazy when people do that. Few others? To instead of too is used a lot. And one I have tried to correct that I usually do is definately. The correct spelling is definitely.

I always get a chuckle when people use the phrase "dominate player" instead of dominant. That's a classic planet misstep.

Yeah, that one bugs me as well.

A thing DOMINATES... DOMINATE is a verb.
A thing <i>is</i> DOMINANT if it dominates.... DOMINANT is an adjective.

According to this guy's less than scientific method it's "transexual" (sic) by a wide margin:

Armed with a list of spelling errors and my old friend Google, I decided to see if I could find the most commonly misspelled word on the Web. If you can do better, leave a comment. (The number of results is in parentheses after each word or term.)

- transexual (2860k)
- didnt (1230k, via Matt)
- doesnt (1080k, via Evan)
- seperate (804k, via Bill)
- calender (727k, via Graham)

I know it's a misuse of the word and not a misspelling but one that really bugs me is using "breathe" instead of the word "breath".

Yeah. For example: "I took a breathe and a gawd dammed gnat went down my throat".

I've seen it the opposite way too.

I hate it when that happens. I was running one day lots of years ago and got a moth jammed in my throat that way. That was nasty. No water or anything to wash it down with. I used the spigot on the side of some house.

then/than is one that bothers me like "Id rather the Chiefs D use a 3-4 then a 4-3" So what you are saying is you'd rather the Chiefs D start in a 3-4 and then switch to a 4-3?

This is not really a misspelling, but unneccessary apostrophies bother me.

ie: "I think the Chief's are going to be good this year"
