"My spelling is Wobbly, It's good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places. " - Winnie-the-Pooh (A.A. Milne)

Does spelling feel like a fairly wobbly enterprise to you? If so, you won't be the only one! Sometimes it seems as if the more you stare at a word, the odder it comes to appear. Take the word "wobble" itself, for instance. Way back in the seventeenth century, the word was spelled with an a instead of an o: "wabble". The spelling of English words has changed greatly over time and sometimes being good at spelling is less a matter of knowing rules and more a matter of memory. So practise, practise, practise! (Or is it practice?)
