This is a test of your spelling ability. Using spell-checkers is like using a motorized cycle in a bicycle race.

Sorry Jerry, it's not a test of spelling, it's a test of knowledge.

Not if they don't require you to spell it correctly. Think of jeopardy, the people give the answers out loud, no spelling required. It's a knowledge quiz. you can make it a spelling quiz if you want. but most people are here for the knowledge part. very few of us are here for spelling tests

But this one does. I just thought of Jeopardy (which I've been on!) but, like you say that's oral, and this is written, and here for the point you gotta spell it rite for the point.

It was on the New Zealand series, and I don't think they ever announced episode numbers for them. All I remember is the final answer, which was "the art of bell-ringing"; I had no idea and in a despairing long-shot I wrote "What is donging" which brought the house down. Luckily all 3 of us got it wrong, and because I bet the least, I won. I got through the next episode as well, but the third night I was knocked out. Anyway, now I know what campanology is, and always will.

Jerry928, is spelling "right" rite...or is that a New Zealand thing? Also, so many of the tests on here allow for spelling variations, so no, this site and specifically this test is not a spelling test unless that is a requirement in the instructions.

Nah, rite was just showing how horrific spelling things wrongly can look and feel. This is quiz is fine expecting you to know both the state, and its correct spelling, to earn you the point. A plurality of quizzers have managed to do that that for every question, so I hope you've become one of them.

Jeopardy allows pretty crappy spelling on written answers, they're just looking to see if you know the answer.

I tend to write massachutes like massa (=a huge amount or mass in my language) and chutes as in parachutes, but that is the wrong way to spell. Though it seems stuck in my mind haha.

I used to spell it like "Massachussetts", so now I remember it like this: "So the 'z' sound in the middle of Massachusetts must be due to a double-s, but it isn't. The other double-consonants are there and don't make a 'z' sound."

Kentucky, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virgina all refer to themselves as commonwealths; however, this legally means nothing and as far as the federal government is concerned they are states just like the other 46.
