Other questions about "Spelling"

A: Yes you should put the before spelling
Q: When do you say “Jepes Cripes”? (The spelling might be wrong.) Or, do you think when I can use it?

I’ve just seen that a stranger said this and laughed on the street. It sounds like a pun on “Jesus Christ”. I think it may be a slang, or the person just said it for fun.
A: You are right. In English (and American) there are many phrases beginning J_ C_ which are substitutes for Jesus Christ.

"Jesus Christ!" is an exclamation but it is too strong for some religious people so they may use other words instead.

Some examples... your one is Jeepers Creepers! (that is American). Another common one is Jiminy Cricket!

If anyone makes an exclamation that starts J_ C_ it is probably the same kind of euphemism. You may also hear this with other words, people say "Sugar!" instead of shit and "Fudge!" instead of fuck for example.

All of this is slang and for informal use, although the euphemisms are quite mild.

BTW English "Cripes!", "Crikey!" and so on are euphemisms for "Christ!".
Q: Since “paediatrician” is the American spelling, is "pediatrician" applicable both to British and American English?
A: "Pediatrician" is American. "Paediatrician" is British. I'm sure that everyone will know what you are talking about, but if you were to write a paper in an American school about "paediatricians," then they would take off points for spelling it wrong.
Q: I have mistaken the spelling of 'legal' as 'regal' up to the present. soa natural?

Q: I want to know the spelling of a word indicates a kind of cellphone, pronounced like "climb show." I've heard that word on a podcast.

I would like to find its photo on Internet and check whether my understanding is correct.
