Spelling Rules: I Before E, Except . . .

spelling rule: I before E

Spelling rules work
most of the time,
except for the
thousands of exceptions.


For example:

I before E,
except when
you get eight
receipts for
a sleight heist
from a feisty
weird beige
foreign neighbor.


Case closed.

Don’t you just love
English spelling?


And here’s a variation based on the names of a few Facebook commentators:

I before E, except when you get eight receipts for a sleight heist from a feisty weird beige foreign neighbor named O’Reilly or Steinemann.
Spelling rules: i before e
