What Spelling Books Don't Tell You about English Spelling.
Cronnell, Bruce
This paper describes some of the regularities of English spelling that are generally ignored in spelling books. Specifically, topics of discussion include simple sounds with complex, but predictable, spellings; infrequent, specialized spellings; and homophonous final syllables. The use of these spelling rules can help elementary school students correctly spell more words with less difficulty. (KS)
