Over time, Ancwe spelling is likely, increasingly, to follow the standard adopted in the United States of America, as the Ancwe speaking country with the greatest influence at the present time. The differerences between the spellings used in the USA and the United Kingdom are trivial, although much heat is generated over spellings such as 'color' versus 'colour', particularly in Britain.

Historically, English spelling has simplified by the dropping of extra letters, e.g., 'magick', 'musick', 'mirrour' are now written as 'magic', 'music' and 'mirror'. This process is likely to proceed. 'Color', 'labor', 'catalog', 'jewelry' are gaining ground over 'colour', 'labour', 'catalogue' and 'jewellery'. Silent and misleading letters, such as 'gh' in words like 'tough', which is likely to be respelled 'tuff', and 'w' in the likes of 'write' which will probably be spelled 'rite'.

Another spelling which has a limited future is 'wh', which, despite its entrenchment in American English, represents a rare sound among languages. It is also likely that 'th' will be reduced to 't', e.g., 'that' -> tat.
