Orthographie - Questions on the scientific background of spelling rules, hyphenation, capitalization, word breaks, emphasis, or punctuation. Use the tag 'spelling' for simple questions on how to spell a word or phrase.


The orthography of a language specifies a standardized way of using a specific writing system (script) to write the language. Where more than one writing system is used for a language, for example Kurdish, Uyghur, Serbian or Inuktitut, there can be more than one orthography. Orthography is distinct from typography.
