Product description

Product Description

Learn to love and appreciate English spelling by understanding all about its quirks and strangeness. In 75 plain, straightforward, fact-filled pages The Reasons Why English Spelling is so Weird and Wonderful covers:
* how the various tribes that invaded England developed, influenced and
messed about with English spelling;
* why pronunciation and spelling are different;
* and why there are so many words that mean the same thing or similar.


Two of the most important ways to improve spelling are:
* understanding why words are spelled the way they are;
* taking an interest in where words come from.


The benefits in knowing the history and background of spelling are:
* feeling less frustrated by the 'weird' letter patterns;
* not getting so angry at spelling;
* understanding why there are so many silent letters;
* understanding the logic behind the illogical;
* and being more confident about it.

Joanne Rudling is a writer, lecturer and teacher-trainer with 16 years' experience teaching all aspects of literacy and writing in various colleges, universities and organisations. She loves spelling so much she has her own spelling website www.howtospell.co.uk, has a regular spelling blog and her own You Tube channel (Howtospelluk), with thousands of followers across the globe.
