  • Welcome back to Weekly Words. My name is Alisha, and this week we're gonna talk about commonly

  • misspelled words. I'm excited about this because I like catching misspellings.

  • Believe.” Tobelievesomething just meansto accept something as true,”

  • or not true in the negative. “Believeis commonly misspelled? Do they spell itbelive”?

  • Well, “believeis commonly misspelled. Don't do that. So if you're having trouble

  • remembering the correct way to spell the wordbelieve,” consider that the wordlie

  • is in the middle up the word, which is kind of counter-intuitive if you've been paying

  • attention to the Weekly Word series. If you're trying to persuade

  • a friend to do something, you might say, “Please believe me, this is gonna be the best party

  • ever! You have to come.”

  • The next is “a lot.” This is commonly misspelled because people like to put that

  • “a” and thelottogether. It's actually two separate words “a” andlot.”

  • “A lotjust means “a large number of somethingor “a large amount of something.”

  • Uh, “manyof something in a sentence you might say something like, “I have a

  • lot of hobbies. I like skiing, snowboarding, and whitewater rafting.” So just spell them

  • separately. Don't put it all together.

  • Oh, the next, aah… “There,” “their,” andthey're.” Students of English tend

  • to be better about spelling these words than native speakers of English, and I find that

  • very interesting. The firstthere,” T-H-E-R-E, refers to “a place,” as in, “He lives

  • over there.” “The book is over there.” Somewhere other than where you are right now.

  • The second form, T-H-E-I-R, is the possessive form ofthey,” as in, “That's their

  • house.” “That's their dog.” Something that belongs to some other group of people.

  • And the last form, T-H-E-Y-apostrophe-R-E, “they are,” refers to a quality about

  • another group of people as in, “They are the students.” “They are the teachers.”

  • It's the contracted form ofthey are.”

  • Onward. The next word isgrateful.” “Grateful.” The meaning ofgratefuljust means that

  • you areappreciativeof something. In a sentence you might say, “Oh, I feel so

  • grateful my teacher took time after class to explain this concept to me.” Grateful

  • is commonly misspelled because this “G-R-A-T-E” sounds just like the wordgreat.” G-R-E-A-T.

  • But actually, thatgreat,” “goodmeaning is not the correct spelling for this

  • word. We usegrate (G-R-A-T-E)” instead. This spelling ofgrateis also used

  • as a verb, as in togratethings in the kitchen. Umm...I don't know if that

  • has any relation to this or not. Probably not. It's G-R-A-T-E.

  • Next isreceive.” “Receive.” Toreceivesomething as a verb means umm… “to be

  • given somethingorto get something.” “Receivecan be kind of tricky because

  • of the “I” in the “E” place where the “I” before “E” except after “C”

  • rule applies. It's not a 100 percent true rule, but typically after the letter “C,”

  • if the letters “E” and “I” need to follow it after the letter “C,” “I”

  • is typically not the first letter to come. Usually it's “E” that's the first letter.

  • So it should be C-E-I, “receive,” rather thanrecieve.” Something like that. And

  • a sample sentence, you might say, “I received a gift from my friend on my birthday. I was

  • really happy about that.”

  • The next word isend.” The wordendis not very commonly misspelled. But thank

  • you for joining us for this episode of Weekly Words. Please watch your spelling with these

  • words, as it can be very important to get them right. Thanks again, and I will see you

  • next week. Bye-bye.
