The typical dictionary shows how to spell a word, but not why it is spelled that way. Alpha List focuses on the logic of English spelling. It analyzes 2,300 high frequency and commonly misspelled words, citing all the spelling rules that apply to each, and showing how to build derivatives from those words. The rules used are the same ones successfully taught in Spell to Write and Read and Teaching Reading at Home and School. The word selections include the 2,000 words in WISE Guide for Spelling plus 300 more.
