Spelling was the way that words were formed using a combination of letters or symbols.

Some words were spelled with letters that were silent, such as "knife", which had a silent "k". When preparing to greet the Jarada in 2364, Deanna Troi countered Jean-Luc Picard's criticism of the confusing Jaradan language by noting that Humans spelled knife with a k. Picard explained that he did not, adding that he never could spell. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye")

Correct spelling of words was often taught in a classroom setting. In 2370, Talur reminded all her students to practice their spelling and arithmetic. (TNG: "Thine Own Self")

In 2372, Benjamin Sisko told his son that the spelling in his first draft of Anslem was terrible. (DS9: "The Muse")

The next year, Nog read Jake's story "Past Prologue" and found spelling errors, including the misspelling of the word "disposal" without the letter "i". (DS9: "The Ascent")

Later, when Jake told Doctor Julian Bashir about his writing a report of the upcoming battle for the Federation News Service, the doctor reminded him that "Bashir" was spelled with an "i". (DS9: "Call to Arms")
