Description - English Spelling by Edward Carney

"Routledge Language Workbooks" are practical introductions to specific areas of languages for beginners. "Language Workbooks" can be used for independent study or as part of a taught class. The texts teach through "hands-on" language analysis; give a balanced insight into basic linguistic theory; apply basic analytical skills to a wide range of data; and explain all technical concepts clearly and simply. This workbook explores the rules and conventions on which present-day English spelling is based. It examines how speech-sounds map onto each other; explores the extent to which words sound identical or look identical; analyzes various kinds of spelling mistakes; looks at the main differences between American and British spelling; shows how and why the names of people and places may vary from expected spelling conventions; deals with the punctuation of words by apostrophes, hyphens and capitalization; and considers several possible approaches to spelling reform.
