Summary vs. summery

The noun denoting a short description of something is summary, with an a in the second syllable. Summery is an adjective used to describe things that are of, relating to, or evocative of summer. The use of summery in place of summary is a surprisingly common error, not helped by the fact that spell check doesn’t catch it because summery is a word in its own right.
