Notes: No, we haven’t misspelled calendar.
Today’s word is the most common misspelling of calendar, but it is a word itself, only a different one.

This word may be used as a verb, to calender, with all the various forms of a verb: calenders, calendering, calendered. This makes a personal noun possible: calenderer.
