Misspelling the word “definitely” as “defiantly” has the hilarious effect of completely changing the meaning of the sentence.
Just so we’re clear on the actual definitions of these words:
- Definitely: in a clear and definite manner; unambiguously.
- Defiantly: rebelliously: in a rebellious manner; “he rejected her words rebelliously”.
For example, saying “I will defiantly buy a hat” is kind of like saying “I will rebel against the system by purchasing a hat!”
This is where Twitter’s search feature brings in the hilarity:
