“How d’you spell … ?” is a question asked by many people of all ages since first we held pen and paper.
The aim of this book is to help the memory achieve correct re-call. This demands memorable at-a-glance constructs. To achieve this, SIMPLICITY has been the author’s purposeful guideline
In the past it was understandable - reference books were scarce. Not so today. Many English Language books are available as is the internet, and yet, still, the question is heard.
It is routine to spell ‘out’ the requested word but, invariably, the difficulty is caused by just a few letters especially in words with similar sounds, for example, E-I or I-E as in RECEIVE AND BELIEVE. Difficulty too, with same sound words as AFFECT/EFFECT, BREACH/BREECH and the resultant hesitations on correct choice.

MARY RHIANDO was born in Exeter, Devon, during the war years. Some of Mary’s earliest memories were of sirens, searchlights and bombing raids. She hails from a family of Publicans whose customers included American and Canadian soldiers billeted in the garrison city. She remembers noisy, fun-filled evenings, heard from a bedroom over the public bars. Then, one night, silence, with whispers of “postings”.
Her school-days were spent at St. Wilfrid`s Convent which was later followed by a move to Surrey and work as a Secretary with ABC Television. She married at twenty-four and with a husband, daughter and son to look after, family life progressed for many decades in the north west of the county.
Mary’s recent widowhood could see a return to Devon. A recent trip-down-memory-lane to a grassy field and five-bar gate through which once trooped school-girls, is now, an imposing hospital entrance.
The Exe Valley, whatever the season, never disappoints.
