What are the words most commonly misspelled by the average high school
pupil? In an endeavor to solve this problem, two thousand letters,
with five postal cards in each, were sent to representative high
schools in every state in the United States, requesting the heads of
the various departments to report the words most commonly misspelled
in their classes. From the many thousand replies, this text-book has
been compiled.

The first word in Lesson I was sent in by seven hundred high school
teachers; the other words in this lesson show, by their order, the
frequency with which they appear in the replies. No word has been
considered unless suggested by at least two teachers. This book, then,
built on the judgment of those best qualified to know--the teachers
themselves--contains only the words most frequently misspelled by the
average high school pupil.

A simple phrase is placed after each word, illustrating its use, and
serving to identify it better than would a short, abstract definition.
The division of words into syllables with accent marks will be of
great assistance to the pupil, should there be any question in his
mind as to the correct pronunciation. The typography is based on the
idea that it will be a great help to the pupil in visualizing the
words if he sees them in script as well as in print.

When the diphthongs _ei_ and _ie_ are pronounced _[=e]_, _c_ is
followed by _ei_, all other letters by _ie_. Examples: _ceiling_,
_receive_, _siege_, _believe_. Exceptions: _leisure_, _seize_,
_weird_. The word _slice_ will help pupils to remember this rule--_i_
after _l_ and _e_ after _c_ when applied to _believe_ and _receive_.

       *       *       *       *       *

Final _y_ following a consonant changes to _i_ before a suffix not
beginning with _i_. Examples: _busy_, _business_; _dry_, _dried_. When
the suffix begins with _i_, as in _-ing_ and _-ish_, the _y_ is
retained to avoid having double _i_. Examples: _try_, _trying_;
_baby_, _babyish_.

When the final _y_ follows a vowel, the _y_ is retained before a suffix.
Examples: _toy_, _toyed_; _betray_, _betrayed_; _annoy_, _annoyed_.

       *       *       *       *       *

To form the plural of words ending in _y_ following a consonant change
the _y_ to _i_ and add _es_. Examples: _quantity_, _quantities_;
_factory_, _factories_.

When the final _y_ follows a vowel, the _y_ is retained and _s_ added.
Examples: _journey_, _journeys_; _delay_, _delays_; _money_, _moneys_.

       *       *       *       *       *

Monosyllables and words accented on the last syllable, which end in a
single consonant, following a single vowel, double the final consonant
before a suffix beginning with a vowel. Examples: _hot_, _hotter_;
_begin_, _beginning_. Exceptions: (1) _gas_, _gases_. (2) The letters
_w_, _x_, and _y_ are not doubled. Examples: _show_, _showing_; _box_,
_boxed_; _pay_, _paying_.

In words not accented on the last syllable, the final consonant may or
may not be doubled. Examples: _traveler_ may be spelled _traveller_;
_canceled_, _cancelled_; etc.

       *       *       *       *       *

In words ending in unaccented _e_, the final _e_ is dropped before a
suffix beginning with a vowel. Examples: _come_, _coming_; _glue_,
_gluing_; _fine_, _finer_. Exceptions: (1) The _e_ is retained when it
is necessary to preserve the identity of the word, as _dyeing_,
_singeing_. (2) When the final _e_ is preceded by _o_, as _shoeing_,
_hoeing_. (3) After _c_ and _g_ when the suffix begins with _a_ or
_o_, as _peace_, _peaceable_; _outrage_, _outrageous_; _courage_,

Doctrine Publishing Corporation provides digitized public domain materials.
Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians.
This effort is time consuming and expensive, so in order to keep providing
this resource, we have taken steps to prevent abuse by commercial parties,
including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Doctrine Publishing
Corporation's ISYS search for use by individuals, and we request that you
use these files for personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort
to Doctrine Publishing's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a
large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the use of
public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Keep it legal -  Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for
ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just because
we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States,
that the work is also in the public domain for users in other countries.
Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we
can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of any specific book is
allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Doctrine Publishing
