Brits Spell Better Than Americans, Says a Survey

If you don't learn to spell correctly at early ages, then you are way, way behind. Time to re-learn and recapitulate, thinking you know all and everything about your language.

    Are you embarrassed by your spelling? If so, you're not alone. More than half of us cannot spell 'embarrassed' — 54 per cent have trouble with it, according to a poll of 1,000 adults. Even more troublesome is 'millennium', which 60 per cent get wrong.

    The poll, commissioned by the Spelling Society, compared abilities in Britain with those in the US.

    Adults in the US performed less well. The only word that the Americans definitely spelt better than the Brits was . . . 'definitely'. In both countries men performed less well than women, except on one word — “liaison”.
