Spelling Rules.
Fry, Edward
This succinct guide notes that spelling rules are sometimes strange and wondrous and often more than a little complex. The guide presents rules for: (1) forming plurals and "s" forms of verbs; (2) forming possessives; (3) adding suffixes; (4) forming prefixes; and (5) the "ei" or "ie" rule. The guide notes the existence of rules based on phonics. The guide states that the "invented spelling" of beginning writers and readers gives way to more accurate and sophisticaed rules. The guide concludes that there are still, and always will be, exceptions to the rules of spelling. (RS)
