Spelling Better -- Guideline #3

Your vocabulary increases by leaps and bounds when you take notice of root words, prefixes, and suffixes. Spell the root word correctly and similar words fall into place. Play anagram games, such as "Wheel of Fortune" and "Scrabble". Do crosswords.

How is that breaking the rules and being an anarchist???

U.S. spelling is devoid of "rules". Anarchy asks you to question -- things such as the reason words are spelled the way they are. My kind of anarchy also offers guidelines.
