letter "O" where the letter "A" belongs. Like this:
Because this misspelling is such an endemic problem, I devised a
little memory aid to assist in remembering the correct spelling of the
word. The first letters of each word in this very true sentence combine
to form the correct spelling of genealogy. Remember the sentence and
you'll be able to spell the word correctly every time.
