In my years of writing, copywriting, and freelance proofreading and editing, I’ve seen writing from people of varying skill. We all have one thing in common: misspelled words. Some are simple typos. Some are words we’re trying for the first time. And sometimes, our brains just say, “I know you’ve spelled that word a thousand times, but I’m going to turn off for a bit.“
In this series of posts, I’ll be sharing the fun ones I’ve found, followed by my humorous definition of what the word might mean if it were real.
See if you can guess the writers’ intended words (in their defense, there are some tough words here). Enjoy!
Uncorrugable – Cardboard that’s impossible to use.
Hippochristy – Not following your own beliefs in the name of the Egyptian god, Taweret.
Hermitically – Thank goodness for those guys living alone, taking the time to ensure our containers are completely sealed.
Orangutang – Nothing like a tasty, orange-drink-flavored primate.
Happenstamps – Postage that’s there when you need it!
Diurbetic – Liquids go right through you AND you have issues with glucose.
Laminantable – Sad, yet able to be covered with a thin protective film.
Diety – A god of fasting.
Favrecate – Able to create a winning football team by the addition of a veteran quarterback.
Diurrea – It goes right through, just not along the normal route.
Constantnation – A country that never changes.
Envioble – People are likely to be jealous of its ability to remain untouched and free of violation.
Intended words: incorrigible, hypocrisy, hermetically, orangutan, happenstance, diabetic, lamentable, deity, fabricate, diarrhea, consternation, and enviable.
Good luck with your wtiring!
