A blog for people who love puzzles. With a little indexing on the side.
I finally learnt how to spell Minuscule because of the French animated TV series. and I do that thing of pronouncing it as spelt when I'm trying to spell a word, or thinking of another form of the word - minus is spelt with a 'u', so minuscule is. cartilaginous is spelt with an 'a', so cartilage is. and the fyoosha is named after a guy called Fuchs, so should actually be pronounced Fuksya, but understandably isn't :-)I still struggle with sodding fluorescent jackets. maybe I can break it into Flu? or Escent?...
I learnt to spell Minuscule from that show too Deb! LOL. Pity about the proper pronunciation of fuchsia ... ah well!Yeah, flu-or-escent would work. I might use that too!
Hi DeniseAlso, yacht and rhythm. These are words I still chant in my head, letter by letter, despite having learnt to write them 40+ years ago ;-)I was very embarrassed to discover a couple of years ago that I'd written 'dessicated' instead of 'desiccated' in a couple of spots on my food blog. Whoops. Lucky I don't have many readers ... or many readers who are editors ...!Cheers, Karin
Desiccated / dessicated is a mistake I've made frequently too! And yes, yacht and rhythm nearly made it to the list!
