Where would you find a word that you can't spell?

There are several things you can try:

  • Compare its pronunciation to words that you do know how to spell
  • Look for rhyming words that use the same spelling
  • Look in a thesaurus under words that mean about the same thing
  • Type the word into a browser that looks for similarly spelled words
  • Ask the word phonetically here on Answers, preferably with a clue to what the word means that you are trying to spell.
