Spelling is an important aspect of writing. Good spelling knowledge is the engine for efficient reading and writing.

Without a doubt, English spelling is a complicated matter. The term spelling reform refers to any organized effort to simplify the system of English orthography. Over the years, organizations such as the English Spelling Society have encouraged efforts to reform or "modernize" the conventions of English spelling, generally without success.

Spelling reform is a deliberate, often officially sanctioned or mandated spelling change. English spelling is somewhat tes of reform (spelling reformists) call for English spelling to be reformed (spelling reformism).English-language spelling reform is unlikely because no one is in charge.

OVERVIEW In "An Essay on the Necessity, Advantages, and Practicality of Reforming the Mode of Spelling,” Noah Webster, the lexicographer, laid out some of his ideas for an American system of spelling that would appear later in his American Dictionary of the English Language().

(A lexicographer is an author or editor of a dictionary.). Rather than trying to change spelling to be different from the rest of the world in an attempt motivated by blind nationalism, the US should just adopt Oxford spelling, the most etymologically correct and international spelling of the English language.

Accounts of earlier proposals of reform in English spelling are to be found in Sayce’s Introduction to the Science of Language, vol. i, p. et seq., and White’s Everyday English, p.

et seq. The best general treatment of the subject is in Lounsbury’s English Spelling and Spelling Reform. The spelling reform featured in his first dictionary, A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language, was based on the author's combined vision of logic and aesthetics.

In the late-fifteenth century printers began printing books written in the form of London English which had already become a kind of standard in manuscript documents. Between and about English spelling gradually became regularized. There are noticeable differences in the look of printed English before the mid-seventeenth century, but.yes, english needs a reformed spelling system.

unfortunately the anglosphere isn't united enough to ever agree on any much needed changes, and the more people involved (especially in a democratic system) the harder it is to get them to agree. our best bet is a that a small country with a high English population will move ahead and start reforming the spelling of the language themselves, in.Noah Webster's An American Dictionary of the English Language was the first great dictionary published in North America, and was enormously influential.

Motivated both by nationalist fervor and a desire to reform spelling, Webster proposed numerous spelling changes in his work. Some of these, such as dropping the U from honour and mould, were accepted in America.
