Homework Help: English-Ms Sue

Posted by Robin on Monday, February 1, 2010 at 5:46pm.

This is my revision to my earlier question, please proofread.

Often, the dictionaries are wrong about this, in fact by putting one word first; they are supporting a self fulfilling prophecy. Consider the entry, "ax or axe", which appears with the two words in that order, in five of my seven dictionaries. If we are all taught to be using the first spelling, and if all of them put the same spelling first; the the first spelling is bound to occur more often.

Thank you,
Robin
