WRONG:

DILEMMA


RIGHT:

DIFFICULTY


A dilemma is a difficult choice, not just any difficulty or problem. Whether to invite your son’s mother to his high school graduation when your current wife hates her is a dilemma. Cleaning up after a hurricane is just a problem, though a difficult one.


“Dilemna” is a common misspelling of “dilemma.”
