WRONG:

INDITE


RIGHT:

INDICT



“Indite” is a rare word meaning “to write down.”


Authorities indict a person charged with a crime. This act is called an “indictment.” The C is not pronounced in these words, so that “indict” sounds exactly like “indite,” but don’t let that cause you to misspell them.
