I'll send this to Writers, but I'm guessing they will want some edits, including some examples of what you mean.

comment why is googling the definition of “aviance” so difficult?
@Janus Tim remarked in the comments as well. I think oerkelens and I posted at the same time, both of us with the French spelling, and lead the pack there. Pretty funny.

comment why is googling the definition of “aviance” so difficult?
@Tim That is extremely funny. I changed the spelling on that thrice and still got it wrong. It's the French spelling; I'm sure that's why it got me.

@Marthaª That's true, but this question is unlikely to help future visitors. If it were broadened into something like "is this a commonly confused phonetic pair", we could leave it open. As it is, I think the user has a helpful answer.

You have done a good job explaining the situation. This question appears to be off-topic because it is about misremembering a word.

I think you mean ambiance. There isn't any English word aviance.
