For example, I have been teaching English for quite a while, and I thought I was aware of the most common errors: using it’s when it should be its or vice versa, inserting a comma before every and, misspelling definitely as definately, which then gets auto corrected to defiantly.

Remember that possess owns an extra s.
Second new error: Choosen
Apparently, people are curious to see what the offspring of choose and chosen would look like. Well, it’s like the baby with the dog’s face I saw on the cover of the Enquirer when I was little: it doesn't really exist.
Choosen is not a word.
I do, however, wish that the dog baby was real. It was hilarious.
