Yes, it's a common misspelling. A short introduction to a book that goes
before the main contents is a "fore-word" (as in "word"s that go be"fore").
It's pronounced the same way as "forward" (to go to"ward" the front), which
is why they're often confused.

(A good name for a TNG-themed bookstore would be "Ten Foreword".)
