(Most People Can’t)


This is part 3 of a spelling quiz we recently posed to a group of highly educated legal marketing and business development professionals at an annual conference. They were sure they could ace our questions—after all, communication is the foundation of their businesses.

Guess what?

Many of them made mistakes! In fact, many of them made the same mistakes! They were astounded.

So here’s our challenge: See if you can do better. Then tell us about it in the comments.



How’d you do? Comment with your score and the one(s) that tripped you up. Then feel free to share this quiz with your friends on social media using the links at the top of the page.
