"If she can't spell, why is she a librarian? Librarians should know how to spell.” - Beverly Cleary, Ramona's World

Can you remember learning to spell the word "library" when you were small? It wasn't easy, was it? In the fourteenth century, the word was spelled "librarie", "libraire" and "librarye". Fifteenth century spellings include "lybrarye" and our current spelling, "library". It really isn't any wonder if the word is difficult to spell! What do you think your teacher would say if you gave this excuse for your misspellings: "But, Sir, I was only spelling it the fifteenth-century way!" Do you think he'd buy it? Probably not. Better get to work then and practise more spellings.
