If they so choose to do it defiantly, they'll spell definitely however they want.

That's alright, you have psychic abilities that the rest of us don't.

If they choose to do so defiantly, then I advocate them spelling it as they choose.

I'll admit that's one of the words I can't spell, and I'll usually just go with whatever my fingers type out when trying to use it (though I can spell correct it with Firefox though). Anyway, here's my attempt at it, just off the top of my head, and I won't spell correct it:

definantly

It was a brave attempt

I'm one of the spelling sticklers around here, and I screw this one up regularly. I usually catch it before it goes out, but...I don't know what it is about that word.

All you have to remember is that "finite" is part of it.

Since finite is spelled closer to how it sounds you'll be less likely to drop that a or e in there.

The most common is probably definetely.

This is on my list of words that I can't remember how to spell; I've given up.
