    Just over half of English words contain one or more letters which are not rule-based. What makes learning to spell English exceptionally time-consuming are exceptions to the main spelling patterns: http://englishspellingproblems.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/the-english-spelling-system.html. The patterns which are disobeyed most often take the most teaching and learning. Reducing their number would greatly speed up English literacy acquisition and reduce failure: http://improvingenglishspelling.blogspot.co.uk/2013/08/why-english-spelling-needs-modernising.html
