    American Spelling Book by Noah Webster. Overview - Originally published in , this book is considered the second largest selling book of all time after the Bible. Bound in a distinctive blue cover, it earned the nickname "the blue-backed speller". Used by American children as the standard text over the span of nearly a century, this.   The introduction of a standard American dictionary helped standardize English spelling, a process that had started as early as , when printer William Caxton published the first book printed in.

    Webster's first book was the blue covered Speller, which taught students how to spell correctly in the US (not British spelling). This book was the first American Textbook. Of course Mr. Webster is mostly known for Webster's American Dictionary, which took him over seven years to write/5(). In the early 18th century, English spelling was inconsistent. These differences became noticeable after the publishing of influential 's British English spellings mostly follow Johnson's A Dictionary of the English Language (), while many American English spellings follow Webster's An American Dictionary of the English Language ("ADEL", "Webster's Dictionary", ).

    Based on a junior spelling dictionary of header words, it is my intention that this book will help break down barriers to learning and turn poor spellers into more confident learners. Some words have up to ten alternative spellings provided based on phonetic knowledge and word recognition. The much-anticipated Fifth Edition of The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language is the premier resource about words for people who seek to know more and find fresh perspectives. Exhaustively researched and thoroughly revised, the Fifth Edition conta new words and senses, over 4, dazzling new full-color images, and authoritative, up-to-date guidance on usage .
