Does spelling matter?

Students in our English in the 21st Century module created a wall of ideas about spelling in the 21st century,  inspired by a chapter of Prof. Simon Horobin’s “Does Spelling Matter?” book. We posted a picture of this visualisation of our discussion on Twitter, and it was great when Prof. Horobin tweeted a reply! Click here for our Twitter conversation
