A spello (abbreviation for spelling mistake) is a mistake caused by inadequate spelling skills of the writer. These can sometimes be corrected by the writer having the self-doubt necessary to occasion the act of referring to a reliable manual, for example, a dictionary. A competent proof-reader (i.e. one whose spelling skills are more comprehensive than the writer) is usually an adequate resource for reducing spelloes.
