Top 20 Misspellings surveyed 3500 Brits in 2010 using a questionnaire and produced the following list of misspelled words. Now I have referred to their work and reproduced the list below for all connoisseurs of spelling. I know a lot of you will be interested in the results, including budding entrepreneurs and brocollis? There is consensus that it is definitely embarrassing and unacceptable to not use these spellings, particularly if working in a bureaucracy, each occurrence will play on your conscience, and you will miss the chance to separate yourself from the crowd by your linguistic manoeuvring. In parallel to proper grammar, correct spellings supersede many boring old spellings, and prevent your brain from liquefying.
