Abstract

Enabling young learners to become independent linguistic inquirers should be one of the fundamental aspirations in the teaching of spelling. Standard English spelling integrates conventional letter sequences (orthographic units) that represent speech sounds (phonological units) as well as word parts that signal meaning and grammar (morphological units). Therefore, becoming a proficient speller involves learning to coordinate phonological, orthographic and morphological strategies with increasing efficiency and autonomy.
