There’s a number of tours you can take… the spelling mistake one has an interesting fact. Not that 1/2 a million spell accommodation incorrectly but that 1.5 million get it right! (It is two c’s and two m’s and one d, isn’t it?)

Oh, and Alphadictionary.com has such a cool little community thing happening around spelling and stuff. Ok its not wiktionary (wiki multi lingual dictionary) but at least you can post questions (and answer them if you are a clever clogs) and chew the fat on obscure etymologies or whatnot.
