But for its irrational and almost idiotic spelling, the English language would soon become the world language, for which, except for its spelling, it is by far the best fitted.

The spelling of Italian, Spanish and German is so nearly phonetic that no spelling books are needed in those countries- learning to read is much easier, and children are almost two years ahead of ours at the same age. We cannot fully reform our spelling till we have a letter for each essential sound, but until then we may use the simplest spelling used by reputable authorities. All the spellings used by the Literary Digest and in all the Funk & Wagnalls publications are followd with two additions.

While the Digest uses crusht, drest, prest, possest, dipt, trapt, discust, stept, stopt, dipt, leapt, etc., we use the following rules of the Simplified Spelling Board:Where the past tense of verbs is formd by adding the sound t, it is speld so- as, blest, dipt, stopt, etc.Where the past tense of verbs is formd by adding the sound d, it is speld so- as, earnd learnd, loand, raind, turnd, drownd, etc.Where the past tense of verbs is formd by adding the sound ed it is speld so- as, landed, sounded, wounded, etc.Exception: The old spelling is retaind where any of the above changes would cause any uncertainty as to pronunciation or meaning- as cared instead of card, cured instead of curd, convinced instead of convinct, noticed instead of notict, etc.A Special bulletin giving full discussion will be sent on request.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
