The past tense of spell. Alternative spelling is spelled. Americans may not use this term, as it was almost sacrificed to Webster's mania for making English over in his image in that dictionary. This is why we say that you speak 'American' rather than English. Many words are spelt differently or not used there, except as (sic) mispellings. If you still disagree, visit the Oxford English Dictionary online. I believe the OED is generally conceded to be the final arbiter of disputes concerning vocabulary in English, is it not? They say that I'm right.
They also say it's a tasty little grain that's very good for you.

A past tense and a past participle of spell.

To tell or name in their proper order letters of, as a word; to write or print in order the letters of, esp. the proper letters; to form, as words, by correct orthography.

Unknown to most 12-year-olds who hang out in IRC chatrooms and claim to be mystics with a well-formed world-view, spelt IS a word.
He spelt the word right, but forgot the accent.

The word ``satire'' ought to be spelled with i, and not with y. --Dryden.

Yesterday in Spelling class, we spelt words starting with the letter `Z'.

Spelt is a complete sentence that means, "Put your seatbelt on now!"

Years of telling countless children, repetitively, to put their seatbelt, was condensed into a simple command, "Spelt!" "Spelt." or "Spelt it!"
Spelt it now Buster or I'm pulling over this SUV!

A grain, in American English. Just because spell check does not correct it does not mean that it is the past tense or past participle of the word SPELL. Correct would be SPELLED. Now if we are talking British English then it could be used that way. However, just because you can't spell doesn't mean you get to use the British English excuse. You have English every year that you're in school and some people just never pick up a damn thing...
I would like to harvest the spelt.

Morons, idiots, and imbeciles spell SPELLED with a T because they see no red line under it.
