Swindon Literature Festival: Simon Horobin

Spelling correctly is difficult. English, a minefield of inconsistencies, is notoriously tricky to spell well. What is your attitude to spelling? Why and where does it matter, and where and why not? Do you know about spelling reforms? What part do emails and text messages play in the future of spelling?

Author of books on the English language and Professor of English at the University of Oxford, Simon Horobin now tackles spelling in his new book Does Spelling Matter? What do you think? Serious solecism or passing irrelevance?
