When people misspell words because they don't know how to pronounce it, and they end up spelling it the way that they say it. Sounding a word out when reading can help to pronounce a difficult word that the reader comes across. However, spelling a word the way you think it sounds often leads to mistakes. A lot of people in the South do this.
