Mine's 'Independnet'.

We all have regular typos (I know it's 'Independent'), or words that we just can't seem to get correct.

A study of 2,000 adults in 2014 provided researchers with a list of the top 50 words that Brits spell incorrectly.

The highest ranking words were 'embarrassment', 'occasionally' and 'necessary', as found by the study commissioned by Nick Jr. UK.

We've written out the list (correctly, we hope) so that we can find out which words indy100 readers make errors with most frequently.
