If you have problems with the spelling of certain words in English it may be because you are too smart.
Researchers at Collins Dictionaries discovered that the most commonly misspelt word was supersede. The problem arises because people use their knowledge of the words that have a phonetically similar ending, like intercede, precede or cede, from the Latin cedere – to yield. They then wrongly assume that supersede is spelt with a ‘c’, according to a report in The Daily Telegraph.
