forming words with letters according to the principles underlying accepted usage
the convention governing the representation of words by letters in writing systems
OK - it's common knowledge that my spelling is bad! Sorry but since I use Explorer/Notepad to write HTML there is little hope of correcting all the smelling pistakes unless you tell me! I have just gone through this page and taken them all out since it is more critical for a glossary, but the rest of the site is terrible
the right order of letters in a word
Proper spelling is the writing of a word or words with all necessary letters and diacritics present in an accepted, conventional order. It is one of the elements of orthography and a prescriptive element of language. As a means of transcribing the sounds of language into alphabetic letters, spelling, however officially sanctioned, often offers but a rough and inconsistent approximation.
