Misspeled word of the year

Published on December 31st, 2013

furlough mainIn 2013, Dictionary.com reports that the most misspelled word of 2013 was furlough.  Apparently, they’re able to track how often variations of this word are checked.

  • furlow was looked up 66 percent more in 2013 than it was in 2012.
  • furlo was looked up 60 percent more.

I guess there were many people looking for some temporary time off work.  My guess for the misspelled word of the year would have been sequester…which is what I shall do now to ring in 2014!  Happy New Year.
