I cannot believe the number
I've seen the word embarrass misspelled on blogs. It's astonishing. Look at the google searches. Nearly 135,000 hits for misuse of the spelling of this root. Not to be a nitpicker, but the bloody word has two Rs.
One R is not optional
spelling. Recently, I've seen the error on almost every blog I visit.
SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS: EMBARRASS HAS TWO R's.
It is harass and harassment that have one R.
What is the world coming to?
