Abstract: After learning the English alphabet, a very few children, perhaps 10% or less, 1 "spontaneously" begin to create their own "invented spellings." Children who participate in invented spelling activity are faced with the task of providing representations of approximately 40 phonemic sounds (depending upon the dialect of English under consideration) with only 26 letters of the alphabet. Hence, it is hardly surprising that children use certain unusual strategies to achieve their goals.
