Dyslexic Words List

So, I have dyslexia and although my reading skill has always been fine by spelling is awful.
I find it really hard to remember certain spellings no matter how much I try or how often I write them down. Im going to list those words here in alphabetical order and I thought that If you also have words you hate spelling you can copy my list, add your own words into the alphabetical order and post the whole list in a comment. That way we can just scroll down to the most recent comment to see the full list.

Next time you or I have to write one of those pesky words down again, we can just look at the compiled list here rather than misspelling a word until Microsoft word stops giving us that dreaded red zig-zag. 

You can even add tips on how you remember those words, put the tip in brackets next to the word. :) 

A
Aisle
Anarchy
Archaic
B
C
Character
Comfortable  (Imagine someone saying "Come to Fort Able!", Com-fort-able)

G
H
I
Ineffectual

M
Monarchy 
Museum (A confused Muse - Muse Um)
N
O
P
Phenomena

Q
R

S

    Onomatopoeia is another one i used to get confused with i rember the order of the last 3 letters by English Is Annoying

You have a soul full of love and kindness and I just know that despite all the hardship, a life’s of happiness awaits you and I’m very proud of you, just keep holding on”

    I do think i have dyslexia(why do they give it such a hard name?!)

    but some words still get me for sure.

    the hardest is defo "definitely" (which is why i use defo when i don't have autocorrect haha)
    i just think of (deaf in italy) 

    "Sausage" is another i just can't without googling haha.
    again i just think of (Saudi and sage)

    its hard to figure out the ones i particularly struggle because i think as i write and that often leads to fast writing/typing so i either forget a word or some letters if its hard because my head hasn't got time to think haha x

    Im pretty sure i have dyslexia, but just never been tested. I dont even have auto correct on my phone cause sometimes it comes up with the completly wrong word aha. 

    The words that annoy me the most is favorite and like  thats the first time ive spelt that right for ages and “definitely” is definitely one aswell. 

    I just put random vowels in my words like “refresh” i write as “refreash” & get similar words wrong
