It is a Privilege

This came in my inbox last week, from Visual Thesaurus:
Ever wonder what the most frequently misspelled word in English is? Seek no further! Privilege presents many challenges, mostly due to interference from other words with similar sounds but different spellings.

Whew. I thought it was just me. I am constantly spelling privilege as “priviledge” and the last sentence of the email has:
Try thinking of the vowels this way: it's two i's, then two e's. Then if you remember there's no edge in privilege, you've nailed it.

I will! I will!

And perhaps now that I have written about it, it will be ingrained in me from here on out.
