Vowels and Consonants

Posted by on Jun 9, 2013 in Blog, Phonics, Reading, Spelling, Vowels | 5 comments

Vowels and Consonants What are vowels? Vowels rule English and learning them cannot be avoided Vowels are a, e, i, o, u, sometimes y as in sky, and sometimes w as in few (double u=w=uu), as in few=feuu. Both vowels and consonants are inconsistent but vowels are much more inconsistent; each vowel has, at least, 5 sounds and 12 spelling patterns. Every vowel has a short sound, a long sound, and a number of other sounds.  The symbols of long vowels are ā, ē, ī, ō, and ū. The symbols of short vowels are ă, ĕ, ĭ, ŏ, ŭ. A long vowel sounds like its letter name. As in fāte, the long ā sounds just like the name of the letter A. A short vowel is unique sound of a vowel, as in the unique short ă sound in făt. Vowels are the strong letters because they are filled with sounds; they are responsible for the sounds we make in our speech. Vowels are so strong; they often help each other in spite of having a consonant between them, as in fāte.  Focus your vision on the vowels when you read, because they are the important letters. Vowels rule English and learning all the rules that govern the spelling of vowels in words cannot be avoided.  Each vowel has several sounds we call phonics, which are spelled in many different ways we call spelling patterns: ♦  The vowel A has 5 major sounds, which are spelled in 12 spelling patterns. ♦  The vowel E has 7 major sounds, which are spelled in 17 spelling patterns. ♦  The vowel I has 8 major sounds, which are spelled in 19 spelling patterns. ♦  The vowel O has 12 major sounds, which are spelled in 20 spelling patterns. ♦  The vowel U has 6 major sounds, which are spelled in 28 spelling patterns. The First Two Rules of Vowels 1- The first rule of vowels: When two vowels are walking, the first one does the talking, as in rain, meat, tie, coat, and argue. 2- The second rule of vowels: Two vowels can still walk when there is only one consonant between them, as in fate, Pete, site, hope, and mute. One consonant between...

Dyslexia in Spelling Can be Reversed

Posted by on Mar 11, 2013 in Dyslexia, Reading, Spelling | 0 comments

Dyslexia in Spelling Can be Reversed    See how dyslexia in given to kids before the 4th grade! What is dyslexia in spelling? Dyslexia in spelling means poor spelling plus writing letters in reverse. What causes dyslexia in spelling is lack of logic in the way English words are spelled; what causes dyslexia in writing letters in reverse is forced speed-reading before learning to spell words. Forced speed-reading before learning to spell causes seeing and then writing letters in reverse. Understanding how dyslexia is given to kids before the 4th grade is the key to ending it. To understand dyslexia, simply see How do you get dyslexia? Dyslexic persons learn differently; their learning style is a logical learning style. When logical spelling rules are provided, dyslexic persons do learn to read and spell. Dyslexia in spelling and in writing letters in reverse ends, after learning to spell and after slowing down to write words slowly. Lee, a sixth grader, had dyslexia and could not read or spell words. When logical spelling rules were provided, Lee learned to read and spell logically, see how →Lee Learned to Read in a Week! Require Logic before They Can Memorize Dyslexic persons are logical learners; they require logical spelling rules before they can memorize the spelling of English words. Their learning style is a logical learning style. They are born with a brain that is wired to accept and memorize what is logical and reject what is illogical. If no logical rules are provided, logical learns cannot remember which spelling pattern to choose when spelling a sound in a word. For instance, they may not remember when to choose an “f” or a “ph” to spell this sound in a word like “symphony.” However and if informed ahead of time that the letter “f” is not allowed in long words, logical learners will easily remember to spell “symphony” with a “ph.” This implies that logical learners can memorize the spelling of words and that they do not have learning disabilities or neurological learning deficiencies. When logic is provided, logical learners do indeed learn and memorize the spelling of English words. Dyslexia is Given to Kids...

How do you get dyslexia?

Posted by on Mar 2, 2013 in Dyslexia, Reading, Spelling | 0 comments

How do you get dyslexia? See how dyslexia is given to kids before the 4th grade! The Six Steps to getting Dyslexia in Spelling and Reversing Letters Step 1: Questioning the Logic behind the way English Words are Spelled Logical Learners →Poor Spellers: Logical learners like, Albert Einstein who could not spell, are born with a brain that is wired to question the logic behind anything they are about to memorize; and they cannot memorize anything that does not make sense. Their learning style is a logical learning style; they are so logical, they expect to see “My cat is cute.” to be “Mi kat iz qut.” If they do not see the logic behind something, they cannot memorize it; and, there is nothing wrong with the way logical learners think or learn. In fact, they are the most coherent and rational thinkers; they simply cannot see the logic in the way English words are spelled.  The reason most people can read but cannot always remember the spelling of the words that they read is that one English sound can be spelled in many different ways. Typically, logical learners are the ones who ask for spelling rules to know when to spell an English sound one-way and not the other. If no spelling rules are provided, logical learners simply cannot memorize the spelling of English words and some of them cannot read at all. Logical children who only know the ABC’s are usually shocked when a great number of sentences like “My cat is cute.” are randomly thrown at them to read without any logical structure (whole language), and they wonder WHY they were told one thing when they were learning their ABC’s and then expected to read or write another. It is this big WHY that makes a huge difference between the two types of learners, who are born with two different wiring systems in their brains. It is because of this big WHY that logical learners (analyzers) fall behind in class while memorizers are reading at a faster pace. Step 2: Too Young to Form All the Questions They Need to Ask Because they are so young, logical...

What is dyslexia?

Posted by on Feb 28, 2013 in Dyslexia, Reading, Spelling | 0 comments

What is dyslexia?     What is dyslexia? Dyslexia is an acquired hurrying disorder that is given to children before the 4th grade. Dyslexia is reading, writing, spelling or saying letters or words in reverse. While all types of dyslexia are caused by forced speed at some point or time, dyslexia in spelling and reversing letters is caused by forced speed-reading before learning to spell words. Dyslexia in spelling is an advanced stage of poor spelling.   There are two major characteristics shared by dyslexic persons, which are focusing only on one thing at a time and having to have logical spelling rules before they can memorize the spelling of words. For details about such shared characteristics, see Test for Dyslexia Online Several Types of Dyslexia There is dyslexia in spelling letters in reverse, as in spelling shipmetn instead of shipment. There is dyslexia in writing words in reverse, as in writing tree birds on three. There is dyslexia in reading words in reverse, as in reading my nice is niece. There is dyslexia in speech, as in saying aks for ask. When people are intimidated, pressured or forced to hurry, they may do anything in reverse. Interestingly, each thing people can do in reverse has a name nowadays; writing numbers in reverse is now called dyscalculia. Do you wonder why feeling forced to hurry has become the norm in our current lifestyle? What causes dyslexia in spelling? Spelling letters in reverse is caused by forced speed-reading before learning to spell words. Before the 3rd grade, pupils who are logical learners become poor spellers because the spelling of English words to them is illogical. Having spelling difficulties causes them to fall behind in class. By the 4th grade, they feel forced to speed-read to finish their homework. Forced speed-reading leaves them no time to see the details inside the words they are reading. Their vision travels too fast in both directions. In their haste, they see letters in reverse and then they write letters in reverse, in the same manner that they saw them and read them. They are forced to run before they can crawl or walk.  How do we get dyslexia?...

Reading and Spelling Phonics

Posted by on Jan 26, 2013 in Blog, Phonics, Reading, Spelling | 0 comments

Reading and Spelling Phonics ph is a phonic and f is a plain letter   Reading and Spelling Phonics The spelling of English sounds we call phonics is inconsistent because a single sound can be spelled in many different ways (many different spelling patterns). Most people can read a phonic in a word but cannot always remember which phonic to choose when spell a sound in a word.  For this reason, reading phonics is easier than spelling phonics. According to reliable statistics, 2 out of 3 native-English speakers can read but cannot always spell correctly the words that they read. Can Read but Cannot Spell Most English speakers can READ the numerous spelling patterns of a sound, but cannot always remember which spelling pattern to choose when spelling that sound in words. For instance, they may read “hockey” but spell it “hocky.” The “hockey” example is only one out of thousands that cause enormous spelling difficulties among logical learners who need spelling rules to know when to spell a sound one-way and not the other. Know that languages that use plain letters like the “f” with no phonics like the “ph” have no spelling difficulties and no remedial reading courses. For instances, native-Arabic and native-Italian speakers are usually finished with learning to read and spell words in their languages by the 3rd grade. In addition, no known cases of dyslexia in spelling have been detected among speakers of such languages. Spelling Phonics Logically is Now Possible Traditionally, the spelling of every English word had to be memorized independently, without any regularity or logical spelling rules. Now and after dissecting English and discovering over 100 spelling rules that govern the spelling of phonics in words, one has the choice of learning to spell phonics in words logically. Logical learners of all ages and from multiple backgrounds have been benefiting from the logical spelling rules I have discovered. The 100 spelling rules are applied in 600 phonics lessons and logical learners read the practice lessons aloud to memorize the spelling of hundreds of words at a time. Give back!
