To write English well, one needs vocabulary, grammar, an understanding of punctuation and good spelling.
“Why is English spelling such a nightmare?” To begin with, English is remarkable for the number of words that can have more than one correct spelling: protestor/protester, judgement/judgment and eyeing/ eying are all permitted spelling whereas ‘accomodation’ is not a permitted variant of ‘accommodation’.
This user-friendly book has thousands of words and tips to improve your spelling and ensure you get it right. Bouquet, boutique, fiancé(e), chauffeur, chemise, ennui, lingerie, ensemble, rouge, a la carte, coquette, nouveau riche are some of the French words used in English. There are many other misspelt foreign words. They are all listed in this book on mastering spelling.
Then there is a list of positive words that make sure you feel good, words of motivation! There is a special section devoted to spelling list for students. Commonly misspelt homophones are listed separately.
This valuable book is recommended for use for students, teachers, writers, editors and anyone working with the written word.
