    You can use the verbs "soletrar" or "escrever".

    Como soletrar a palavra ... em Português?
    Como se soletra ...? /Como soletra-se...?
    Como se escreve isto?/Como escreve-se isto? (more common)

    As spelling is or should be common sense, we tend to use common sense questions instead of direct questions
    Como tu soletras /kaza/?/Como você soletra /kaza/? - It sound like you are asking for a particular way to spell something...not the formal rule for it.

    hi, you can say "Como se soletra...?"
    or "Como você soletra ....?

    Or you can say: "Como você pronúncia...".
    Spell = soletrar.
    How do you spell? = Como você soletra?
    However, in Portuguese, it is more common to say "How is ... spelled?" instead of "How do you spell?", so it sounds more natural to ask "Como se soletra ...?"
