Excerpt from New Business Speller

Not a few new words have come into the language of recent years. Some old words, little used in past years, have come into general use. The latest edition of Webster's unabridged makes use of some new diacritical characters, and makes some changes in pronunciation and definition that should be noted. These are the technical reasons for the appearance of a new business speller.

The technical reasons above enumerated are alone sufficient to justify the bringing out of a new book. There are other reasons, however, that have made the New Business Speller a practical necessity. Commercial education has developed. Courses are more advanced than they were, and students are of a higher grade. Business men are yearly becoming more critical.

The commercial education wave has brought the teaching of spelling into the high schools and academies. The whole field of business education is broader, and more is required in spelling, as well as in the other branches.

For these reasons the tendency has been to increase the number of words in the spelling books. New Business Speller has 6,000 words, or about 1.000 words more than any other. So carefully have these words been selected, however, that every word in the book will be seen to be a useful one. The repetition of words has been worked out in such painstaking detail that, while all needed repetition for review has been given, the book is not bulky, nor is there any wasteful, useless repetition.

The day of the "word list" speller has passed. The unscientific compilations of miscellaneous words that in times past have paraded under the name of speller cannot be expected to last. The subject of spelling can be taught as scientifically, with the same high regard for completeness, systematic development, and effective treatment, as any other school subject. The aim of the New Business Speller is to give such a treatment.

Note the following features:

1. There are 200 lessons. This provides for forty weeks of five days each.

2. Many new words. Instances are Lesson 122, automobile terms, and Lesson 124, aeroplane terms.

3. The total number of words is 6,000. This includes all words in daily use and many words that are important but arc only occasionally used.

4. In the selection of words special attention has been paid to the needs of high school students.
