Spelling reference guide
A knowledge of a few basic spelling principles can be beneficial to everyone, regardless of their spelling ability. Understanding the reasons for such spelling principles as doubling consonants like ‘t’, ‘s’, ‘p’, ‘l’, ‘m’ and ‘n’ or dropping the final ‘e’ before adding a suffix can help everyone improve their spelling. Spelling is one of the most important elements of writing and everyone should strive to be as accurate as possible. This can be as easy as running your eyes over your work before passing it on or keeping a dictionary close by to check any words of which you are unsure.
