Common Spelling Mistakes: How to Avoid them in Writing?

How to avoid spelling mistakes in writing? While some words admit multiple spellings, some are not considered the standard, and thus are misspellings.

Spelling Mistakes

A misspelled word can be a series of letters that represent no correctly spelled word of the same language at all or a correct spelling of another word. Misspellings of the latter type can easily make their way into printed material because they are not caught by simple computerized spell checkers.

Misspellings may be due to either typing errors, or lack of knowledge of the correct spelling. Whether or not a word is misspelled may depend on context, as is the case with American / British English distinctions. Misspelling can also be a matter of opinion when variant spellings are accepted by some and not by others.
