Apparently Americans have preferred spelled over spelt since the 1850’s but us Brits stuck with the alternative and spelt Britishly for another hundred years or so.

It’s not true to say that Spelled Badly has become more popular since Harry Potter’s chum Neville Longbottom shakily brandished his wand.

Wizard idea though… Superfluous bigramulous.

Seen before as spelled and badly.
