its meant to be I before E except after C right??
so why is WEIRD spelt "e" first?
are there any other words which dont conform to this rule?
Weird lives up to its definition
There are no steadfast grammar/spelling rules.
There will always be an exception or three...
some other exceptions to the rule are seize, neighbour and protein
I know! Talk about confusing children. We got taught that rule in primary school, so you grow up thinking every word is spelt ie when it just isn't. It's a silly rule really.
