Common Errors in English

Thanks to arikatt...

I love this site. It's informative and cheeky. Here's a sample:

WARY/WEARY/LEERY
People sometimes write “weary” (tired) when they mean “wary” (cautious) which is a close synonym with “leery” which in the psychedelic era was often misspelled “leary"; but since Timothy Leary faded from public consciousness, the correct spelling has prevailed.
