Stuck on a word?
You can use morphology (the study of how the words are formed) and etymology
(the study of the history of words) to help you remember the meaning and the
spelling of the words.

The prefix ‘mis’ means ‘wrong’ and ‘nomer ‘ means ‘to name’, from
Latin nominare "nominate" , which altogether means: a name that is not correct or
does not suit what it refers to
