How to Spell “Dalmatian”

It’s not uncommon for people to spell ‘Dalmatian’ as ‘Dalmation’ – possibly due to confusion surrounding the ‘shuhn’ sound in the word.

Remember, not all words with a ‘shuhn’ sound are spelt with a ‘tion’.


See if you can spot the mistake below:

Cruella: Get me a hundred Dalmations for my coat!

Horace: How about using biodegradable fabric instead? Dalmatians are too cute to be used for your coat.
