Back Cover

It is generally believed that English is a language of exceptions. For many, learning to spell and read is frustrating. For some, it is impossible…especially for the 29% of Americans who are functionally illiterate.

But what if the problem is not the language itself, but the rules we were taught? What if we could see the complexity of English as a powerful tool rather than a hindrance?—Denise Eide

Uncovering the Logic of English challenges the notion that English is illogical by systematically explaining English spelling and answering questions like “Why is there a silent final E in have, large, and house?” and “Why is discussion spelled with -sion rather than -tion?” With easy-to-read examples and anecdotes, this book describes:

  • the phonograms and spelling rules which explain 98% of English words.
  • how English words are formed and how this knowledge can revolutionize vocabulary development.
  • how understanding the reasons behind English spelling prevents students from needing to guess.

The author’s inspiring commentary makes a compelling case that understanding the logic of English could transform literacy education and help solve America’s literacy crisis. Thorough and filled with the latest linguistic and reading research, Uncovering the Logic of English demonstrates why this systematic approach should be as foundational to our education system as 1 + 1 = 2.
