The Dilemna Dilemma

The Dilemna Dilemma

I just finished writing a blog post, and as part of the process naturally ran it through spell check and grammar check (I wrote it in WordPress, so I used Grammarly Lite: I’m a HUGE fan!)

I used the word dilemna three times in the post: and got three error messages. So instead of ignoring it – because I know how to spell dilemna - I googled dilemna.

And found pages and pages informing me that the great hoax of this century is that millions and millions of us in the US – and around the world – were taught how to spell dilemna incorrectly: its dilemma.

I think I’ll stick with dilemna for now.  Just to make sure my spell-checker is working.
