Brain Game: Short Spell #1
Welcome to the mentalfloss.com Brain Game. I was the spelling champion (three years running) at my high school. Granted, this was nearly 30 years ago, and God bless 'em, but my public-school alma mater wasn't exactly known for churning out rocket scientists. Still, my 9 years with mental_floss have honed my skill, so it's time to put some of it to use in a new Wednesday Wordplay challenge. Good luck!
ONE of the five words in the following list is misspelled. Identify the culprit:
The misspelled word is PAVILLION.
While the brand name of Hewlett Packard's long-running desktop PC series is spelled this way, the word - meaning "an ornate tent" - is properly spelled PAVILION.
Thanks for playing. Tomorrow: a new "Really, Really Bad Rebus" for Think Thursday!
