Excerpt from Test Words in English Orthography: With Full Definitions; Also, a List of Modern Geographical Names, With Their Pronunciation, for the Use of Grammar Schools and Academies
This edition of Henderson's Test Words in Spelling has been carefully revised, and in every... respect brought up to all modern requirements.
The publishers' records show that it is used in all parts of the country, and that hundreds of thousands of copies have been sold. This is probably the best proof that could be adduced of the permanent value of the work.
It should be borne in mind that the successful teaching of spelling is more an exercise of the eye than of the ear. The author has found that his pupils acquired but little proficiency in spelling by committing to memory exten sive columns of words of the same character and sound. Therefore, he has associated together words combining similar, or nearly similar, sounds produced by different combinations of letters.
He has also added a list of short words that from their resemblance in sound are liable to be misspelled, and has given brief sentences illustrating their meaning. To be come familiar with the general appearance of the words, it is, of course, essential in learning spelling by the eye that every pupil should have a copy of the book. Teach ers who are examining Henderson's Test Words will note the fact that almost all the words selected are those in everyday use, which are often spelled incorrectly.
