After giving a short description of German language and orthography, the current paper reviewed earlier findings on early spelling acquisition, showing that even poor spellers were well able to produce phonologically adequate spellings early on. In contrast, the acquisition of orthographic markers, which were mostly morphology-based, was a long-term enterprise.
