New year's resolution to reform English spelling

  1. 1. Any reform in spelling should take place over along time to prevent confusion. It should also becompletely coherent, and the invention of newletters should be avoided. A convenient way ofrevision would involve altering or deleting oneletter, or associated group of letters, per year, togive people time to absorb the change.
  2. 2. For example, in Year 1 that extremely uselessletter ‘c’ would be dropped to be replased by either‘k’ or ‘s’, and likewise ‘x’ would no longer form partof the alphabet. The only remaining kase in which‘c’ would be kept will be the ‘ch’ formation, whichwill be dealt with later.
  3. 3. Year 2 might well reform ‘w’ spelling so that‘which’ and ‘one’ would take the same konsonant,while Year 3 might well abolish ‘y’ replasing it with‘i’, and Iear 4 might fiks the ‘g’ - ‘j’ anomali wonceand for all.
  4. 4. Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinueiear bai iear, with Iear 5 doing awai with uselessdouble konsonants, and Iears 6-12 or somodifaiing vowlz and the remaining voist andunvoist konsonants.
  5. 5. Bi ier 15 or so, it wud fainali be possible tu meikius of the redandant letez ‘c’, ‘y’, and ‘x’ - bainow jast a memori in the maindz ov oulddoderes - tu replais ‘ch’, ‘sh’ and ‘th’ rispektivli.
