Picture: PHIL BLATCH PP220677 ZILKA GROGAN AT JUST 11 years of age, Felicity Cheng is already an old hand at spelling bees. After winning the Premier's Spelling Bee last year, the Year 6 student took out second place in the seniors division of the compe- tition last Wednesday. Felicity, who is a student at Abbotsford Public School, got it right with ophthalmologist, manoeuvre and obsequious, but narrowly missed out on first place when she overlooked the ''y'' in androgynous. She had been practising for the competition with the help of her mum, Grace Wong, and younger sister Meredith, who is a former winner in the junior division. ''We listened to ABC 702 Radio Deborah Cameron in the morning and Richard Glover in afternoon,'' Felicity said. ''Sometimes they use tricky words that we do not know, so my mum just picked them up and asked us how to spell them.'' Competitors were initially shown a list of words available on the internet before the big day. The majority of the students lucked out when asked to spell unseen words, leaving only nine senior finalists in line to win. Felicity said correct spelling was important because it helped people make sense of each other. ''It's important because, if people don't spell correctly, it would be pretty hard to know what they are talking about. ''If you misspell words like there, their or they're, it wouldn't exactly make sense.'' Felicity received two dictionar- ies as her prize for second place. Just say the magic word Are you smarter than a sixth grader? Some of these words are difficult for most people to pronounce, let alone spell. The words Felicity got right: Ophthalmologist Manoeuvre Obsequious But she stumbled on: Androgynous to come second place in the Premier's Spelling Bee.
