2.. Shortcuts Method

Sometimes all we need to remember how to spell our most troublesome words is to use a mnemonic (memory aid) device.

Locate the trouble spot in a word (the place where you misspell it)

Isolate the sound

Underline the trouble spot

Emphasize it by mispronouncing it with the correct letter sound Sep—A—Rate; Fa—Ti—Gue

Look for short words in the long word

Argument (gum)

Environment (iron)

Cemetery (met)
