A typical dictionary shows how to spell a word but not why it's spelled that way. The recently updated Alpha List analyzes 2300 high-frequency words and/or commonly misspelled words including all 2000 words in WISE Guide plus 300 highly used proper nouns. Each word is divided into syllables, marked with SWR markings. Related rules are cited, common derivatives listed, points of interest noted, and crossreference is made to their location in WISE Guide. Alpha List is not restricted to users of SWR. Our marking system is summarized and our rules are provided. If a child misspells a word, now you can have a resource to successfully explain it phonetically. Stands alone or works in conjunction with Wise Guide.
