A man of new words...

The late Edward Rondthaler was a strong supporter of a spelling reform called ‘SoundSpel’. He passionately believed that a new method of spelling would eliminate the struggles of learning to spell English through phonetic spelling.

Using SoundSpel every word would be spelt exactly as it is pronounced making it possible to spell any word so long as you can say it.

Rondthaler is best known for this wonderful clip, in which he demonstrates some of the inconsistencies of English spelling and how the new method of spelling, ‘SoundSpel’ would resolve them.

"Thank goodness for Spellzone during this remote learning phase. The site is easy for students to navigate independently and they're really enjoying the activities and spelling games. You get an awful lot for your money with Spellzone. Really reassuring is the very prompt response with helpdesk queries. I've very rarely needed the helpdesk, but when I have, the issue has been addressed and sorted within a very short time."
