You may have noticed that there are lots of dictionaries to choose from, both the old-fashioned printed kind, and the new-fashioned online kind. Whether it's Merriam-Webster or dictionary.com or Black's Law Dictionary--or any one of the others--you have plenty of places to turn when you want to check the spelling of a word you're not too sure about.

My own personal, go-to favorite is the Oxford English Dictionary, which has both a published version (in 20 volumes!) and an online version.

Oxford took a look at its collection of more than 2 billion words, and found that some are misspelled far more often than others. Here are 17 that Oxford found get misspelled particularly often.
