This is an auction for ACCOMODATING BROCOLLI IN THE CEMETARY: WHY CAN'T ANYBODY SPELL? by Professor Vivian Cook.

Amazon.com reviews:

"This delightful, quick-footed book celebrates the English language by exploring the rich treasure house of spelling in all its variety - setting tests and proposing rules, with illuminating quotations and tantalising lists Headrillaz and Misteeq; Naming Pop Groups; miniscule parallels; non-letters; the three-letter rule; Faeder ure pup e eart on heofunum; UK number plates; HipHop spelling; East Anglian place-names; the E-cancellation spelling test - these are just some of the intriguing subjects presented in this must-have, must-give book."

"Professor Cook helps foreign learners of English grapple with the peculiarities of the language. What we have here is a potpourri without much structure - some interesting historical evolutions, some little quizzes, some real-life examples with photographic evidence."

"I found this book innovative, clever and refreshing, as well as intruguing and informative. I thoroughly enjoyed it - it is a must for students, teachers, and poor spellers alike."
