    To many people, English spelling seems infuriatingly inconsistent and unpredictable, full of pitfalls and uncertainties. Harass is spelt with one 7, but embarrass with two; the vowels of speak and speech are spelt differently, as are those of seize and siege. The endings -ance and -ence, -able and -ible, and -tion and -sion cause many headaches, as do words like guard and gauge, accommodation and accumulate, mischievous, publicly, and professor. Even good spellers have to check the spelling of some word or other from time to time—few people would claim never to make a spelling mistake and many of us have ‘blind spots’ such as separate which, try as we will, we can never be sure we have spelt correctly.
