I have a college degree, and my job requires extensive written communication. But I have to admit this one has been flying under my radar. After reading your comment, I can’t honestly say with any degree of certainty which way I would have spelled it if asked to use the word in a sentence.

There are quite a few commonly misspelled words that raise their ugly heads here from time to time. Recently there was a topic that contained the word “hobbiest” instead of “hobbyist” over and over.

The good news is that I come here for the woodworking…. not the spelling. Some of the finest craftsmen in the world have little or no formal education. As long as they give good advice, I don’t care how they spell it. :-)
