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 (that is, one whose spelling skills are more comprehensive than the writer) is usually an adequate resource for reducing spelloes.
