A
abandon abandoned, abandoning, abandonment (not -bb-)
abattoir (not -bb-)
abbreviate abbreviated, abbreviating, abbreviation (not -b-)
abbreviations See CONTRACTIONS.
-able/-ible Adjectives ending in -able or -ible can be
difficult to spell because both endings
sound identical. You’ll always need to be
on guard with these words and check
each word individually when you are in
doubt, but here are some useful guidelines:
(i) Generally use -able when the
companion word ends in -ation:
abominable, abomination
irritable, irritation
(ii) Generally use -ible when the
companion word ends in -ion:
comprehensible, comprehension
digestible, digestion
(iii) Use -able after hard c and hard g:
practicable (c sounds like k)
navigable (hard g)
(iv) Use -ible after soft c and soft g:
forcible (c sounds like s)
legible (g sounds like j)
See also ADDING ENDINGS (ii); SOFT C AND SOFT G.
abridgement/ Both spellings are correct. Use either but be
abridgment consistent within one piece of writing.
abscess This is a favourite word in spelling quizzes.
(not absess or abcess)
absence absent (not absc-)
absolute absolutely (not absoloute, absoloutely)
absorb absorption. Notice how b changes top here.
abstract nouns See NOUNS.
accept or except? We ACCEPT your apology.
Everybody was there EXCEPT Stephen.
accessary or accessory? If you want to preserve the traditional
  distinction in meaning between these two
words, use ACCESSARY to refer to
someone associated with a crime and
ACCESSORY to refer to something that is
added (a fashion accessory or car
accessories). However, the distinction has
now become blurred and it is perfectly
acceptable to use one spelling to cover
both meanings. Of the two, accessory is
the more widely used, but both are
correct.
accessible (not -able)
accidentally The adverb is formed by adding -ly to
accidental. (not accidently)
accommodation This is a favourite word in spelling quizzes
and is frequently seen misspelt on painted signs.
(not accomodation or accommadation)
accross Wrong spelling. See ACROSS.
accumulate (not -mm-)
