Analysis of the Sounds the letters of the Alphabet Spell

The 40 sounds of US English are spelled by the 26 letters of the alphabet.  This analysis examines each letter and lists the 10 most popular words and gives the percentage of most popular sounds that each letter spells.  This analysis examines word popularity in print, so the most repeated words account for the most frequent phonemes.  See  https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cFhDVIbzkQ   This is a truespel analysis.  Free truespel tutorials and converter ate at http://truespel.com

Writing phonetically helps learning to read - time for truespel

A Harvard study this year found that kindergarten students who tried to write using their own phonetic system were the best readers.  This shows that they crave a phonetic system which is modeled after traditional spelling as much as possible.  Truespel phonetics provides this system with one spelling for each of US English 40 phonemes adopting best choice phonics for the phonemes.  Truespel tutorials and a converter are free on the internet.  Learn about phoneme frequency in text also.  See http://justpaste.it/truequest .

Using truespel phonetics for English pronunciation

Truespel is a free phonetic resource based on phonics that can replace the IPA for US English pronunciation.  It can be learned in an hour by literate folks using tutorials at truespel.com and using the free two-way converter there.  Once they master the pronunciation of each of the 40 sounds of US English (and a stress and glottal stop rule), ELL's can say any word correctly when reading truespel phonetics.  They can write what they hear as well.  The science behind truespel is here http://justpaste.it/truescience .
