IMPORTANT SPELLING RULES IN ENGLISH

When ‘see’ and ‘sea’ both have the same pronunciation and when ‘through’ and ‘trough’ have two different pronunciations, it is not that easy for a new language learner to understand why it is so. It is to help with such scenarios that we have spelling rules. Not everything can be made sense of using spelling rules. For some words (no matter how much you try to reason out), it is just the way it is. However, here are some of the most important spelling rules to help you understand how a particular word should be spelt.

- Adding Prefixes

In most case scenarios, the spelling of the base word does not change when adding prefixes. Prefixes like un-, in-, dis-, im-, re-, pre-, post-, mis-, under-, over- and non- are merely added to the words without changing its spelling. Understanding which prefix to use can also be a challenge at times. Take a look at the following examples to understand how prefixes work.

*THE 12 HEALING HERBS OF THE BIBLE*

The 12 Healing Herbs of the Bible have been used to aid the sick, heal the injured and cure disease. Today, many of these herbs are still used in alternative medicine and by modern doctors who realize the power of natural healing.

1. ALOES
Aloe Vera Plant

John 19:39-40

Nicodemus, who had at first come to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, weighing about a hundred pounds. They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it with the spices in linen cloths, according to the burial custom of the Jews.

Aloe is a perennial plant with thick fleshy leaves full of gelatinous material that was used to embalm dead bodies in Egypt. And since aloe doesn’t have a fragrance on its own, it was mixed with myrrh to offer perfume benefits. Myrrh aloe was used on the crucified body of Jesus Christ before it was wrapped in linen.

Today, the aloe extract, also known as aloe vera gel, is known for various health benefits, including:

- Detoxifying the body

- Hydrating the sun

- Boosting the immune system

- Soothing arthritis pain

- Lowering cholesterol levels

- Soothes acid reflux symptoms

- Promotes hair growth

- Slows the aging process

- Cooling and treating sunburns

- Stabilizing blood sugar

- Preventing kidney stones

- Reducing high blood pressure

- Lubricating the digestive tract and healing stomach ulcers

- Fighting inflammation

- Treating blisters, allergic reactions, insect bites, burns, eczema, psoriasis, wounds, and other conditions associated with inflammation.

How to Teach English Phonics to Adults

The ability to read and write proficiently can boost self-confidence. Overcoming the challenge of learning phonics can provide a
sense of accomplishment and self-efficacy, leading to an increase in self-esteem.

This confidence can translate into a more proactive and engaged approach to personal and professional learning and development.

Overall, the importance of phonics for adults cannot be overstated. It is a crucial aspect of literacy, communication, and personal development. As
educators, we should prioritize and advocate for phonics education for
adults, recognizing its potential to transform lives and open up new
opportunities.

How to Teach English Phonics to Adults

The Basics of English Phonics

Phonics is an integral aspect of English language learning, especially for
adults as well as children. It involves the correlation of sounds (phonemes) with their written symbols (graphemes), which includes letters and letter groups.

Understanding phonics is paramount in helping adults improve their
reading and pronunciation skills.

An Overview of Phonemes, Graphemes, and Diagraphs

A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound in a word, while a grapheme is the smallest unit of written language that represents a phoneme. For example, the word ‘cat’ consists of three phonemes (/k/, /æ/, /t/) and three matching graphemes (c, a, t).

Diagraphs, on the other hand, are a type of grapheme that comprises two
letters representing one sound. They can either be consonant diagraphs
such as ‘sh’, ‘ch’, ‘th’, or vowel diagraphs like ‘ai’, ‘oo’, ‘ea’. Recognizing these elements is crucial for adults to accurately decode and produce English words.

Consonant and Vowel Sounds in English Phonics

In English phonics, we distinguish between consonant and vowel sounds.

Consonants are sounds made by obstructing the airflow in some way by
using the oral tract, such as ‘b’, ‘c’, ‘d’, while vowels are voiced sounds
produced without blocking the airflow, e.g., ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘i’, ‘o’, ‘u’.

There are 21 consonant letters in English, but 24 consonant sounds, and
while there are five vowel letters, there are 20 vowel sounds.

This discrepancy between letter and sound quantity can pose a challenge to adults learning English phonics, but with persistent practice, they can
master these variances.

Understanding Syllables and Word Stress in Phonics.

A syllable is a single, unbroken sound of a spoken word, and it’s a
fundamental building block of phonics. Every English word has at least
one syllable, and understanding how to identify them can significantly enhance reading fluency.

Word stress, another vital aspect of phonics, refers to the emphasis
placed on a syllable in a word. English is a stress-timed language, meaning some syllables are longer, and some are shorter. For example, in the word ‘example’, the first syllable is stressed, denoted as /g.zæm.pəl/.

Overall, English phonics is a complex yet fascinating topic that underpins effective language learning.

For adults learning English, mastering the basics of phonics—understanding phonemes, graphemes, diagraphs, consonant and vowel sounds, and the concept of syllables and word stress—can significantly improve their reading and pronunciation skills.

Conclusion

In the journey of teaching English phonics to adults, we’ve discovered it’s not a one-size-fts-all process, but rather an exploration of unique learning paths.

We’ve learned that patience, creativity, and a keen understanding of
individual learning paces are paramount.

As we continue to adapt our methods to better meet adult learners’ needs, we reaffirm our commitment to making phonics education an engaging and rewarding experience.

How to Teach English Phonics to Adults

The ability to read and write proficiently can boost self-confidence. Overcoming the challenge of learning phonics can provide a
sense of accomplishment and self-efficacy, leading to an increase in self-esteem.

This confidence can translate into a more proactive and engaged approach to personal and professional learning and development.

Overall, the importance of phonics for adults cannot be overstated. It is a crucial aspect of literacy, communication, and personal development. As
educators, we should prioritize and advocate for phonics education for
adults, recognizing its potential to transform lives and open up new
opportunities.

How to Teach English Phonics to Adults

The Basics of English Phonics

Phonics is an integral aspect of English language learning, especially for
adults as well as children. It involves the correlation of sounds (phonemes) with their written symbols (graphemes), which includes letters and letter groups.

Understanding phonics is paramount in helping adults improve their
reading and pronunciation skills.

An Overview of Phonemes, Graphemes, and Diagraphs

A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound in a word, while a grapheme is the smallest unit of written language that represents a phoneme. For example, the word ‘cat’ consists of three phonemes (/k/, /æ/, /t/) and three matching graphemes (c, a, t).

Diagraphs, on the other hand, are a type of grapheme that comprises two
letters representing one sound. They can either be consonant diagraphs
such as ‘sh’, ‘ch’, ‘th’, or vowel diagraphs like ‘ai’, ‘oo’, ‘ea’. Recognizing these elements is crucial for adults to accurately decode and produce English words.

Consonant and Vowel Sounds in English Phonics

In English phonics, we distinguish between consonant and vowel sounds.

Consonants are sounds made by obstructing the airflow in some way by
using the oral tract, such as ‘b’, ‘c’, ‘d’, while vowels are voiced sounds
produced without blocking the airflow, e.g., ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘i’, ‘o’, ‘u’.

There are 21 consonant letters in English, but 24 consonant sounds, and
while there are five vowel letters, there are 20 vowel sounds.

This discrepancy between letter and sound quantity can pose a challenge to adults learning English phonics, but with persistent practice, they can
master these variances.

Understanding Syllables and Word Stress in Phonics.

A syllable is a single, unbroken sound of a spoken word, and it’s a
fundamental building block of phonics. Every English word has at least
one syllable, and understanding how to identify them can significantly enhance reading fluency.

Word stress, another vital aspect of phonics, refers to the emphasis
placed on a syllable in a word. English is a stress-timed language, meaning some syllables are longer, and some are shorter. For example, in the word ‘example’, the first syllable is stressed, denoted as /g.zæm.pəl/.

Overall, English phonics is a complex yet fascinating topic that underpins effective language learning.

For adults learning English, mastering the basics of phonics—understanding phonemes, graphemes, diagraphs, consonant and vowel sounds, and the concept of syllables and word stress—can significantly improve their reading and pronunciation skills.
