Invented Spelling

Video taken from the channel: Reading Rockets

Inventive spelling refers to the practice of children using incorrect and unusual spellings for words. It is also sometimes called “invented spelling.” Typically, inventive spelling is used by students who are just learning to put sounds together to make words. Invented spelling is a step on the path to conventional spelling, not an end in itself.

Teachers can allow students to use invented spelling and still emphasize that there are correct spellings. As their spelling ability develops, students should be expected to spell more and more words correctly, beginning with very commonly used words like “the” and “and.”. Invented spelling refers to young children’s attempts to use their best judgments about spelling. In one of the first major studies of children’s beginning attempts at learning to spell, linguist Charles Read (1975) examined the writing of thirty preschoolers who were able to identify and name the letters of the alphabet and to relate the letter names to the sounds of words. Invented spelling (or inventive spelling) where children write unfamiliar words the way they think they sound, even if they are incorrect, gradually breaking the code and progressing to the right word, is effective.

There’s also something about that kinesthetic movement, writing on paper, that reinforces neural pathways. Inventive spelling for children may be encouraged or discouraged by teachers and parents who may believe that expression is more important than accurate orthography or conversely that a failure to correct may lead to difficulty in communicating more complex ideas in later life. Inventive spelling programs may also be known as “words their way” in some schools’ curricula. Critics of inventive spelling have argued that inventive spelling does not produce superior writing skills.
