Common misspelling

I know “fourty” is a common misspelling of “forty,” but any time you’re getting something permanently inked on your body, you really need to look it up.

    Is it really that common ? I’ve always known how to spell forty. If I were that dude I’d say it was on purpose.

  2. Dano says:

    I’m sure the number and skulls have some significance to her, but that thing is HUGE. Could she not just have the NUMBER 44? Hard to misspell ‘4’.

  5. nik says:

    Still poorly done, but “fourty” isn’t an incorrect spelling it’s the Canadian and British English spelling. She’s probably Canadian?

  6. teeko says:

    Fourty is the correct spelling. If you want to Americanize it then I guess that seems wrong. What do you think about the colour?

  7. Kaytie says:

    Teeko — it’s not “Americanizing” it. We’ve had our own language (American English) for more than 300 years. Maybe take a linguistics class. Sorry about that whole, y’all losing the war thing. Build a bridge, get over it.

    That’s called wearing your IQ on your sleeve.

  9. Emma says:

    When there’s more than one accepted spelling of a word it’s a little hard to claim that it’s misspelled?!?! It kinda makes you guys look like a bunch of idiots.

  10. PJ says:

    To set the record straight:
    Fourty is NOT a British spelling of the word forty.
    I’m originally from the UK – transplanted to America twenty years ago. We never spell it that way unless it is being spelled incorrectly. It is a common misspelling in both countries.

    Fourty is not the accepted spelling anywhere. At least among educated people.
