Why is Dyslexic so hard to spell...

Well, I can tell you why.

It's because it comes from ancient Greek and Latin.

FYI - The word dyslexia is actually two words put together.

The first part is ‘Dys’ which is a prefix and means four things but only two apply here and they are difficulty or impaired. The lexia comes from lexicon. Lexicon meaning language. So dyslexia means: difficulty or impaired with language, and I like to add, in all of its forms. So the term dyslexia means a person who has difficulty with the written and spoken word in many forms.

So there you go. Now you know what dyslexia actually means and why it has a difficult spelling.

The world needs dyslexic thinking.
