think about it when you say you say "sim" not "S-Cim" thats like saying "huwhipped" instead of "whipped"...does this even make sense?

I think the problem with spelling comes from poor pronunciation.

If you listen to the way some people speak, it's no wonder they have spelling difficulties. Then you might get me started on the decline in education where standards of spelling and grammar are despised by the leftie brainwashed "teachers".
