The Spelling Problem

Mark Pirie

"It is possible to spell a word correctly by chance, or because someone prompts you, but you are a scholar only if you spell it correctly because you know how."

my sister works
as a primary school teacher.

she sometimes has trouble
spelling 'big words' in
school reports.

is that time again,
and so she rings me up,
asking me how to
spell 'exuberant'.

I tell her, it's simple,
like this:

EX - UB - UR - INT.

she notes it down.

this possibly will
cause some trouble
for her.

but, I don't care,
she should've used
a dictionary.
