Spelt is not a word in any dictionary period, learn your tenses... maybe hooked on phonics?

You might have a quote from some dictionary but I still don't agree that can be easily added in...

Main Entry: 1spelt
Pronunciation: 'spelt
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Old English, from Late Latin spelta, of Germanic origin; perhaps akin to Middle High German spelte split piece of wood, Old High German spaltan to split -- more at SPLIT
: an ancient wheat (Triticum spelta syn. T. aestivum spelta) with spikelets containing two light red grains; also : the grain of spelt

This is the definition of spelt has nothing to do with the word spell.


1 /spɛl/ verb, spelled or spelt, spell·ing.

v. spelled or spelt (spělt), spell·ing, spells

v. tr.

1. To name or write in order the letters constituting (a word or part of a word).
2. To constitute the letters of (a word): These letters spell animal.
3. To add up to; signify: Their unwise investment could spell financial ruin.

Shut up? Yeah.
