Spelling Homework 5.7.21
Spelling Rule: /shun/ spelt cian (sion, ssion and tion)
Why do we have this rule?
–cian is used if the root word ends in c or cs.
(Recap from last week:
–sion is used if the root word ends in d or se. Exceptions: attend – attention, intend – intention
–tion is the most common spelling. It is used if the root word ends in t or te
–ssion is used if the root word ends in ss or –mit).
Pease make sure you know the meaning of each word.
