I'm not good at spelling it. See that first "d"? It either doesn't exist in my accent or, on the occasions when it shows up at all is extremely understated and in a different place.
Trying to explain how a word is spoken across accents is difficult to do for those of us not well versed in the IPA but basically, barring major differences on the level of letters between your accent and mine, the word is either "Wenzday" or "Wendsday" with the d in "Wend" being barely pronounced. Either way it definitely is not pronounced W E D anything. And so, for my whole life, the word has tripped me up. I read it without any hesitation or a second thought, but when I write it I have to stop myself and remind myself that it's not how I say it it's "Wed-nes-day" breaking it into three triads of letters makes sure both that I get the first "d" and that I get it on the correct side of the "n".
Are there any words, especially simple or common words, whose spelling routinely trips you up?
