A summary of blog posts about spelling in the 4th quarter of 2013 from October to December.

Spelling tips: September 2013 Accommodation Some people say you have to remember that the difficult letters are doubled. I've seen the d doubled. So remember: Our accommodation has Comfy Chairs and Modern Mats. Asthma A Sensitivity To House Mites, Allegedly. Committee This is easy to remember if you hate meetings, but harder if you enjoy them. Many Meetings Take Time & Everyone's Exhausted. I before E: the full version i before e except after c, or when sounding like a, as in neighbour or weigh, unless c sounds as sh, such as ancient or efficient.

Memento This is hard, because it is easy to go astray and connect with the wrong idea. A memento represents your memories. Take care that it doesn't remind you of a moment - that is a common mistake. Occasion On occasion you'll travel over two seas. So repeat the letter c. Just don't get carried away and repeat the s. This one should be easy, as we actually pronounce both the cs. But you'd be surprised… Piece Yes I know this is a classic i before e except after c word, but somehow it seems to catch us out. Just remember one phrase to give you the clue: A piece of pie. Practice & practise To remember which is which: s is the verb & c is the noun: that's the rule that runs the town. So doctors practise medicine when they are working, because what they are doing is a verb. They do so at a place called a practice, a noun, the name of the place. And a Licensing Agency such as the DVLA issues licences. This is all very well if you can remember that the s is the first letter in the rhyme. Which I think is quite hard. The rule applies to the following words: advice, practice, device, prophecy, licence - all nouns advise, practise, devise, prophesy, license - all verbs www.the-proof-angel.co.uk © Sarah Perkins 2013

Principal & principle It is easy to confuse these two completely different words. Some people find it easy to remember that if the word is an adjective, it must be principal they need. It works like this: • It's the Principal of a College. • It's the Principle of the Steam Engine. So you need a little rhyme to remember that: A Principal, Can be your pal, A principle, Can be you rule. www.the-proof-angel.co.uk © Sarah Perkins 2013
