Some parts of speech like Noun, Verb, Adjective, Adverb follow  spelling rules to some extent as many prefixes & suffixes are adopted from other languages  like French, German, Spanish ..etc.
Examples : Noun gets suffixes like - ' ness', ' tion , 'ssion' , ' ity ' (Godliness , permission, promotion,, clarity) Adverbs :  ' ly ' ( Clearly, nicely..)
