    There is a post on a sub Reddit "Glitch in matrix" I think about something similar to this. Different word I think, it was a while ago so can't remember, anyway there are all sorts of theories.

    I spell it dilemma.

    There are some crazy stories on there, a lot of people being sure that they died but were given a second chance/woke up in another reality. I'd love to hear if anyone has had that experience!

    This one drives me crazy too, except DH and I have started reversing it, so drive on the Specific highway (takes you where you want to go) and like to shop at Specific Fair (you get exactly what you want).
    I spell it dilemma, and it was always the Berenstein Bears for me.

    I grew up in the uk and I'm positive we were taught dilemna as I remember pondering they there must be a silent n when I heard it pronounced

    I had an argument with a friend just recently about how words are being misused so much that it's becoming an accepted use of the word. It drives me crazy!
    My Australian Pocket Oxford Dictionary (4th Edition - 2001) says otherwise?

    Well I'm thoroughly confused! I'll be sticking with "I feel sick" until there's an official bubhub ruling. 😜

    English isn't stagnant. Language is always evolving and that's not a bad thing.

    Either that, or it's the Mandela Effect! And I'm from a different timeline to all you nauseated people!

    Default Does anyone here spell the word dilemma as "dilemna"?

    You're right but in some ways I hate that language is evolving :-( I love it in the sense of new words and idioms for sure (or is it idia?). But sometimes I feel like 'its evolving' is just an excuse for the vast amount of people who don't use our language properly.

    And I LOVE our language.

    Fun fact - did you know there are more non-native English speakers than native speakers in the world now? So I guess it makes sense that it changes.
