Reading and Spelling Phonics

ph is a phonic and f is a plain letter

 

Reading and Spelling Phonics

The spelling of English sounds we call phonics is inconsistent because a single sound can be spelled in many different ways (many different spelling patterns). Most people can read a phonic in a word but cannot always remember which phonic to choose when spell a sound in a word. 

For this reason, reading phonics is easier than spelling phonics. According to reliable statistics, 2 out of 3 native-English speakers can read but cannot always spell correctly the words that they read.

Can Read but Cannot Spell

Reading PhonicsMost English speakers can READ the numerous spelling patterns of a sound, but cannot always remember which spelling pattern to choose when spelling that sound in words. For instance, they may read “hockey” but spell it “hocky.” The “hockey” example is only one out of thousands that cause enormous spelling difficulties among logical learners who need spelling rules to know when to spell a sound one-way and not the other.

Know that languages that use plain letters like the “f” with no phonics like the “ph” have no spelling difficulties and no remedial reading courses. For instances, native-Arabic and native-Italian speakers are usually finished with learning to read and spell words in their languages by the 3rd grade. In addition, no known cases of dyslexia in spelling have been detected among speakers of such languages.

Spelling Phonics Logically is Now Possible

Traditionally, the spelling of every English word had to be memorized independently, without any regularity or logical spelling rules. Now and after dissecting English and discovering over 100 spelling rules that govern the spelling of phonics in words, one has the choice of learning to spell phonics in words logically.

Logical learners of all ages and from multiple backgrounds have been benefiting from the logical spelling rules I have discovered. The 100 spelling rules are applied in 600 phonics lessons and logical learners read the practice lessons aloud to memorize the spelling of hundreds of words at a time.
