SPELLING Are There Any Tricks to Becoming a Successful Speller? One technique for successful spelling is to say, or pronounce, the word correctly. Another technique for successful spelling is to write the word. It is helpful to refer to a dictionary for the correct spellings of questionable words. A technique for successful spelling is to divide the word into parts, or syllables, and spell it syllable by syllable. Another technique for successful spelling is to write the spellings of difficult or often-used words in a notebook. Examples: 1. When a suffix beginning in a vowel is added to a word ending in a silent e, the e should be dropped before adding the suffix. 2. When a suffix beginning with a consonant is added to a word ending in a silent e, the e should be kept before adding the suffix. 3. Before adding a suffix to a word ending in y preceded by a consonant, change the y to i. 4. Before adding a suffix to a word ending in y preceded by a vowel, do not change the y. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
