Secondary Principles Discussion

There are two secondary principles in Solar Spell:

1. Keep the good roots of Legacy Spelling and retain as much familiarity as possible without violating the Foundational Principles
2. Regularly update spelling patterns to maintain consistency with spoken language.

Legacy Spelling has good roots that, sadly, have been weakened by centuries of neglect. Solar Spell returns to those roots and strengthens them. No new letters are added and the graphemes retain their root sound. And secondly, spelling can’t be set it and forget it because spoken language is alive, organic and evolving. Spelling is the shadow of spoken language and as spoken words change shape, their spelling “shadows” must adapt through regular updates.
