By far the most common mistake is “emphatic” (correct spelling – sure). This bug held the number one spot last year. Errors such as ‘today’ (correct spelling – today), ‘really’ (correct spelling – really), generally/wogule (correct spelling – not at all) and even now (correct spelling – yet) have been made less frequently. Therefore, most of the errors that make it to the top have to do with joint and disjointed spellings. Compared to the results of the 2020 survey, the “original” bugs and “thieves” fell off the top. The first fifteen were combined with “opposite/opposite” and “ktury” (the correct forms are opposite/opposite and whichever).
