Webster objected to the way certain words had been borrowed from the other languages but had not been respelled. The result, he claimed, was a confusing mixture of letters, many of which were not pronounced the way they looked, and others of which were not pronounced at all.

Webster urged Americans to simplify their spelling. For example, he argued that ‘head’ should be spelled ‘hed’ and ‘bread’ should be spelled ‘bred’. Most of Webster suggestions did not catch on, but his textbooks sold millions of copies.
