    I m not really sure what the purpose of the book is supposed to be I thought it was somewhat of a rant against bad spellers, but it isn t, really It s a mixed bag of things cobbled together into a hodge podge of semi related things tests that see how well you can spell, blurbs about the evolution of the English language and how some words evolved over time, a review of some of the rules and fallacies of spelling, including the i before e except after c rule which doesn t hold much water, by I m not really sure what the purpose of the book is supposed to be I thought it was somewhat of a rant against bad spellers, but it isn t, really It s a mixed bag of things cobbled together into a hodge podge of semi related things tests that see how well you can spell, blurbs about the evolution of the English language and how some words evolved over time, a review of some of the rules and fallacies of spelling, including the i before e except after c rule which doesn t hold much water, by the way and various and sundry other things There were photos of stupid spelling mistakes in newspapers but they weren t very good ones and lists of differences between English English and American English, quotations from various famous people about spelling, lists of ways our modern culture has bastardized the language further with things like internet acronyms, texting language, etc It was very poorly organized without a clear mission that I could glean I love words and bits about their origins and the evolution of the language, but these bits weren t even that well done Oh yes there was a section about hyphenated words too LOL I think the author wrote it just because he was pissed off that people think he s a woman because his name is Vivian I dunno I wouldn t really recommend the book It took me about an hour to read through it and I was decidedly unimpressed

    I m really unclear on the point of this book It s a random collection of spelling rules without much cohesion I also think it suffers from some formatting issues on the Kindle Many other books in this space, this isn t one to spend time or money on.

    I think you might have to be British to truly get this one Picked it up thinking it would be similar to Eats, Shoots and Leaves, but it sof a compendium of fun facts on etymology, historical spelling, etc Interesting, but the structure of jumping from one topic to another was difficult to follow and it struck me as a long excuse for why people can t master contemporary spelling Yes, English is crazy Yes, spellings have changed over the years Yes, everyone has a different opinion I think you might have to be British to truly get this one Picked it up thinking it would be similar to Eats, Shoots and Leaves, but it sof a compendium of fun facts on etymology, historical spelling, etc Interesting, but the structure of jumping from one topic to another was difficult to follow and it struck me as a long excuse for why people can t master contemporary spelling Yes, English is crazy Yes, spellings have changed over the years Yes, everyone has a different opinion on whether it matters, and indeed, plenty of eminent writers have struggled with the bizarre rules of our language But it remains a fact that if one reads copiously and takes the time to investigate any questionable words, spelling correctly is neither out of reach nor unnecessary

    I was interested in and enjoyed the sections on why we spell the way we do, how spellings and usages have changed over time, and different pronunciations of letters I found the many photos of shop signagepadding than anything, especially after the first few pages There are humorous looks at spelling of English in other countries, on notices, menus and other places.This is a short book with every item contained on an individual page, so we don t feel we are reading a lecture I ll come ba I was interested in and enjoyed the sections on why we spell the way we do, how spellings and usages have changed over time, and different pronunciations of letters I found the many photos of shop signagepadding than anything, especially after the first few pages There are humorous looks at spelling of English in other countries, on notices, menus and other places.This is a short book with every item contained on an individual page, so we don t feel we are reading a lecture I ll come back to it for reference

    I wanted this to be good There were times when the author was using examples from poetry or letters that it was good Then she would go off into another page or two of examples of how grocers or musicians or Internet speak uses numbers or letters for words There were far too many such pages along with pages of sign pictures illustrating it, pages and pages of Is this British or American spelling when the major differences have already been explained multiple times.We neededcontent Som I wanted this to be good There were times when the author was using examples from poetry or letters that it was good Then she would go off into another page or two of examples of how grocers or musicians or Internet speak uses numbers or letters for words There were far too many such pages along with pages of sign pictures illustrating it, pages and pages of Is this British or American spelling when the major differences have already been explained multiple times.We neededcontent Someone suggested that English needs sixteen vowels so the sound of each could be distinct rather than re used A table of those suggestions would have been interesting so the reader could see what those 16 sounds are and how we currently spell them I d like to know how we ended up with Q at all when it would be so much simpler to use KW Did it come with the Norman French in 1066 The list of letters that can be silent was enlightening on one hand and deceptive on the other I had no idea that many letters could be silent, but several of them occur because they are direct loan words from other languages where they are silent and this fact was skipped

    A great little read on the English language that glorifies its adaptability instead of harking on correct grammar and spelling I never really thought about how much of the English language we can still understand even when its spelled completely incorrectly, either to show a vernacular or accent, or shortened with numbers or signs Though not always the post cut and dry the English language is wonderful Also I do appreciate it the fact the author kept it on the short side for maximum impact.

    Slim, tacitly pleasing hardcover and most importantly it addresses one of my potential career shifts linguistics I was enchanted by the diverse entities, copious examples and engaging quizzes I would have given it five stars if it had contained less of historical anecdotes history isn t my cup of tea and black and white illustrations fairly redundant.If you re intrigued by the morphology of the ABCs, you will like the book.
