    My top misspelled word is You/your. More of a typo than bad spelling
    My other top problem is a/an before vowel. But this is more syntax related than spelling.

    The other problem tho is differences between English and British spelling, color / colour as an example.

    Yeah i would say i have misused words in the past however it is also hard to spell words correctly relating to who your audience is.

    I have trouble trying to decide between the america way of spelling
    “optimization” or the English way of spelling “Optimisation”
