Are there any words you just cannot spell, no matter how many times you've written them? I will NEVER be able to spell "privilege" or "navigate." Never.

There are a lot of words that I can never keep straight in terms of whether they include "ee" or "ea." I also have trouble with double versus single consonants. Oh, and, "ent" versus "ant" and "ance" vs "ence."

Double consonants always screw me over.

Me, too. When writing big chunks of my dissertation there are a handful of words I cannot type correctly but I know how to spell. It drives me crazy!

"Questionnaire" always gets me somehow even though I fill them out for football all the time.

There are some and I can't remember them and it's more that I can't learn to type them. I can write them but I type by word and some words are impossible for me.

Impracticability
Inequitable
Misdemeanor

And I'm sure there are more. It's funny that impossibility isn't on that list.

I cant think of any examples off the top of my head, but there are most definitely a good few

I have trouble with privilege as well. I usually have to re spell it.
