Letter-for-Letter Spelling

When you are doing letter-for-letter spelling, there are some basic things to keep in mind: 1. The hyphen goes with the letter AFTER it. ...I believe it is -f-f-e? ...Jasmine, J-a-s, as in "Sam," -m-i-n-e. SECOND EXAMPLE: --There is no hyphen after the s in the spelling. --Notice the pattern for a word that is used as an example. It is surrounded by commas and quoted. 2. The capitalization is just as it would be when the word is typed normally. ...MacDonald, M-a-c-D-o-n-a-l-d ...Macdonald, M-a-c-d-o-n-a-l-d 3. When a name is separate words, there is no hyphen in front of the spelling of the second word. ...van Leeuwen, v-a-n L-e-e-u-w-e-n. ...De Marco, D-e M-a-r-c-o. ...DeMarco, D-e-M-a-r-c-o.
