I read a children's book. And I can't understand some part.
"And why not?" Mr.Mirific seemed greatly amused.
"Because it's wrong."
"Sorry, got rid of that word. It's spelled 'r-o-n-g' now and two of them makes a 'r-i-t-e.'"
"The new rules," said Olivier,remenbering what he had overheard at the So-Sos' campsite.
Mr.Mirific can change spelling of word by adding or stealing letter.I understand that 'wrong' change 'r-o-n-g'. And what word changes 'r-i-t-e.'?
I want to know how native speakers think by sense.
In adition, I don't understand what two is. This two appears suddenly in this sentence.
Could you answer my question?
Thank you for your help
