“Receipt” –  that annoying waste of paper we get at the grocery store or  lose for the item we want to return – is a frequently rejected word.   Receet seems so logical!  But our language evolved over the years, mixing root words from Middle English, Old English, French, Latin and more and now just confuses us.  Teachers give spelling rules: “I” before “E” except after “C” but there are exceptions.   So brave players we suggest you check spelling if your first attempt fails.  Use our online resources under “Credits” or find an old fashioned hardcopy and look it up.  We welcome comments/suggestions:    JB
