One day Patricia and I were talking about something and somehow we started thinking of weirdly spelled/hard to spell words, so I’ll be updating this ongoing list of words that I come find. If words are weirdly spelled for the same reason than either I won’t include them or I will lump them together. The weird part of each word will be in bold and separated from the rest of the word. Definitions and pronunciations are found at dictionary.com.
