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
