I’v just seen this on Wikipedia and feel it’s on to somthing intresting. You don’t hav to change the entire alfabet, just make a few useful adaptions to the present system.
A few simpl steps to get the ball rolling:
– write e-sound as e (
head, any, said hed, eny, sed)
– get rid of useless e’s (
have, freeze, valley hav, freez, vally)
– change ph to f (alfabetical!)
– and doing somthing diffrent with those infernal augh and ough words (maybe I should rewrite my surname as Bruf? That’ll stop the awkward “Mr. Broo… Brow… Broah…” phone calls, lol).
I was surprised that the Australian government did attempt to work with the first one (hed, eny, sed, etc.) but it didn’t stick.
By the way, I’v been working on a new wikispaces to present a few of my orthografical experiments, which I’ll share shortly.
(don’t worry, I won’t always be writing like this, just occasionally 😉 )
