Spelling

I may have finally learned how to spell "consistent" today, through typing it so frequently. It has been endlessly embarassing to me that I have needed to look up how to spell it every single time I want to tell a student to "Be consistent."

The problem was whether it ended in -ant or -ent. You would have thought knowing it was an -ere verb would have helped, but Latin does not always help with English.
