That's Rediculous...or is it Ridiculous?

When you talk for a living pronunciation is everything - spelling not so much.  I, however, am a bit of a spelling nerd who gets annoyed when I see things misspelled.  That's not to say I don't ever spell anything wrong.  A recent Google Trends study tells us that the most misspelled word from March of last year to March this year was "quarantine" (some actually spelled it "corn teen").   Go figure.  Probably because it's been the most used word for the past year.  Others included coronavirus, which, every, believe, and definitely.  I blame text abbreviations and autocorrect.  The misspell that annoys me the most is "rediculous" - there's NO E in ridiculous!
