Grade 8 English
Spell it right!
Part 1



If you have some great ideas to pen down and write fabulous essays, yet you are not confident with your spelling, then you should know that you are not the only one who faces this problem. In fact, many great thinkers and celebrated writers, such as Albert Einstein, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, and even Benjamin Franklin, saw spelling as their Achilles’ heel. Various factors make mastering English spelling a formidable task. Here are two of the most significant ones:

  • A large number of English words come from other languages (e.g. Latin, Greek, Farsi, Arabic); therefore, they follow a different system of spelling.

 

Word

Origin

accommodate, colloquial, impetuous, consensus

Latin

hypocrisy, mnemonic, hierarchy, melancholy

Greek

khaki, bazaar, typhoon, caravan, assassin

Farsi

 

 

  • Some words do not sound the way they are spelled. This is mainly because English is not consistently phonetic the way Spanish and Italian are. 

 

receipt, island, jeopardy, rhyme, rhetoric, plough, knead, haughty, gnaw, dough, vase, glue, dye, hue

 

 
Despite these inherent difficulties, there are ways to improve your spelling and grow more confident.

Traveler or Traveller?
If you read from a wide range of resources, then you might face certain problems about the correct spelling of some words. This is rooted in the difference between British English and American English. Although both styles of spelling are correct, the choice you make should ultimately depend on the audience you have in mind when you are writing an essay or a letter.
 

American English

traveler, modeling, woolen
skillful, enrollment, fulfillment

British and Canadian English

traveller, modelling, woolen
skilful, enrolment, fuilfilment
