Of all the words you can misspell, I don't understand why Americans have so much trouble with this one. You add "mis" to the beginning of a word to signify it was done wrong. Misunderstand, misinformation, misspell.

Are "unnatural" or "reeducated" misspelled as well?

None of the above are spelled "correctly". They're all variations of "misspelled". :mrgreen:
Good thing he cut the question.
