I haven't had a 5th grader in many, many years.

That is beautiful irony! Just ... wonderful. Big Grin

Clarification for those who need it. This wasn't a test done by one of my children. 5th grade was a long time for even my youngest.

RE: I can't spell
Gray = US
Grey = UK (and anywhere else English is spoken that isn't US)

That's it, there is no difference in the words other than spelling. But it's always greyhound and grayling.

Also, "it's" always means it is, that is it. Every other time use its.

See, I would have trouble with some of those words. Chlorine, medicinal and monarchy, I'd have to look those up because I hear an "a" in medicinal as in m"a"dicinal, I don't hear any kind of h in chlorine and monarchy. Those h's shouldn't even be in the damn words.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I love spelling Big Grin

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.

I have more trouble pronouncing words. I can "see" the words in my head. I may or may not know how to pronounce said seven syllable word, but I can sure as hell spell it. My husband cringes every time I try to sound out a word because I use Spanish phonetics (is that the right word? Too lazy to double check). I butcher the French language.
