    Quoting from:

    "Since spelling is based on pronunciation, words such as tomato and
    aunt that have alternative pronunciations will have more than one
    possible spelling."

    This doesn't sound like the author of Ewellic expects that users
    will spell everything alike.

    Ewellic is a script, but Exellic might only be a typo.
