About the English Spelling Society.
The English Spelling Society started in 1908 (as the Simplified Spelling Society), and has the aim of raising awareness of the problems caused by the irregularity of English spelling and to promote remedies to improve literacy, including spelling reform. The English Spelling Society publishes leaflets, newsletters, journals, books and bulletins to promote spelling reform of the English language.
Looking for difficult words in the dictionary, English spelling can be a puzzle. Spelling problems for children and dyslexics are largely misunderstood and the aims and objectives below spell out a road map for change.
