The definite solution to spelling “definitely”
April 28, 2007

Haha, this was funny, and useful:

I’ve always had a hard time figuring out the right spelling of the word “definitely”. Now it’s seems I’m not the only one, because after failing to find the word in the Firefox wordlist I made an ordinary Google search and one of the suggested links led to a page called D-e-f-i-n-i-t-e-l-y.com, which informs you that:

The correct spelling is definitely.

Not definately.

Not definatly.

Not definantly.

Not definetly.

Not definently.

And certainly not defiantly.

The correct spelling is definitely.
