Today's Wednesday Wordplay challenge at the mentalfloss.com Brain Game is filled with words that seem to break the "I before E, except after C" rule; only one of them doesn't. Good luck with Short Spell #9:
Just ONE of the five words in the following list is misspelled. Identify the culprit:
ALLEGIENCE CONSCIENCE FOREIGN NEIGHBOR SOVEREIGN
Here is the ANSWER.
The misspelled word is ALLEGIENCE.
The proper spelling is ALLEGIANCE.
Thanks for playing! Tomorrow: Think Thursday.
