    Why are you writing my name's spellings incorrect

    Hi,

    1: ''government'' is pronounced as ''gʌv.ən.mənt'' or ''gʌv.ən.mint''?

    2: ''My spellings are terrible'' is incorrect because ''spelling'' is an uncountable noun, right? and I must say ''My spelling is terrible.''

    3: ''Why are you writing my name's spellings incorrect'' or ''Why are you writing my name's spelling incorrect?

    The first one.

    That's right.
    3: ''Why are you writing my name's spellings incorrect'' or ''Why are you writing my name's spelling incorrect?
    "Why are you spelling my name incorrectly?"
