  • Compound noun formation
  • Different words with similar spellings or pronunciations
  • Homophones (= words with the same pronunciation but different spelling)
  • Minimal pairs (= two sounds which are similar to each other)
  • Need a “Magic E” (“e” making the previous short vowel sound into a long sound like that letter’s name)
  • Plurals
  • Spellings that would also be pronounced that way but don’t exist in English
