Abstract:

"The History of English Spelling" reveals the complex history of Modern English
spelling, tracing its origins and development from Old English up to the present
day. The book provides a highly detailed, letter-by-letter analysis of the Old
English basis of Modern English spelling, followed by in-depth coverage of the
contributions from the many languages that have contributed to current
orthography, revealing the richness of the complex and often frustrating
alphabetic spelling system used in the English language. A complementary
website with additional research material can be found at
