Description
Morrison confesses to being a poor speller who apparently has passed the trait on to his and McRann's children, so he wanted a reference by which people could look up the spelling of a word they knew only how to pronounce. His system is to sound out the word as closely as possible, then drop the vowels, leaving a skeleton of consonants. SPLR, for example, is his version of speller. When necessary he puts a word under both G and J; and C is banished for ambiguity, replaced by either S or K. He gives brief, usually one-word, definitions, particularly to distinguish between words that sound the same but are spelled differently. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
