SOME PITFALLS
discreet/discrete, principal/principle, effect/affect, likely/liable, causal/casual, infer/imply,
number/amount, less/fewer, accept/except, farther/further, ensure/insure, complement/compliment

(For some finer points on diction, think about why you should say "a variable denoted by x",  "Bayes' theorem",  "data are"  and  "chi-squared test", NOT  "a variable denoted x",  "Bayes theorem",  "data is"  and  "chi-square test",  respectively.)
