The periodic table of the Spanish spelling

December 14, 2016 9:56 am

The Spanish linguist Juan Romeu Fernández is the brain behind this idea. Where chemists see elements, this linguist saw also spelling norms and he developed a chart based on the symbols of the well-known periodic table.  His spelling periodic table keeps the original chemical nomenclatures but with a short description of Spanish spelling standards related to the corresponding one or two letters. Immediately after its publication, the table went viral.  Clearly, it is very useful!
