Fonetik Speling 2


So heer is a reekap of the plan.

A - a, after, trap, matter.
aa, able (= aabel),
ah, auto, august (=ahgust),

B - no chaanjes

C - Eeooz S or K for most uses.
Ther is no substitoot for the “ch” sound, as in “church”.

D - No chaanjez

E - ee, free, bee
e, elevator, better.
The sound of “-er” wil bee spelled “ur”, so “meter” = “meetur”.

F - No chaanjez

G - Keep only hard “g” sound, as in “go”, garage = garaj
see “J”,
The “gh” as in “enough” beekums “f”, as “enuf”
usage = eeoosaj

H - no chaanjez

I - Keep only short “I” sound, as in “it”,
Long sound as in “kite” beekums kiit.

J - Beekums soft “G” sound. So “German” beekumz “Jerman”.

K - Beekums the hard sound for “C”.

L - No chaanjez.

M - No chaanjez.

N - No chaanjez.

O - Long sound reeplaasez the long “u”, so “rule” beekumz “rool”,
“Toll” = “toal”,
“zone” = “zon”.
“lock” = “lok”.

P - “Ph” sound for “f” is eeliminaated
Silent first letter as in “psychology” wil beekum “sykalojee”.
No chaanj to standard “P” sound as “pretty”, “pumpkin”, “puddel”.

Q - “Qu” kombinashon wil bee reeplaased with “kw”, so “quick” = “kwik”

R - No chaanj

S - No substitoot for “sh” sound, see “C”
Long “s” as in “use” would beekum “yooz”.

T - no chaanjez.

U - The long “u” as in “use” beekumz “yoos”, or “yooz”.
The short “u” sound is reetained, so, “summer” = “sumer”

V - No chaanjez.

W - Feeoo chaanjez.
“New” wil beekum “noo”.

X - Sum reeplaasments, as in “xray” = “eksraa”, xerox = ziroks or zeeroks.

Y - The long “y” sound is reeplaased by “ii”.
So “type” beekumz “tiip”, “cycle” beekumz “siikel”.
The long ending sound of “yummy” beekumz “yumee”.
Short “y” sound wil bee asoomed by “I”, so “typical” wil beekum “tipikal.”
Werds that start with “y” reelee hav the saond of “eeoo” liik, “you”.
This leevs veree littel for “y” too doo.

Z - Reeplaases “s” in sum werdz.


Long vowul saoond wil bee a dubul leter, as in “aa”, “ee”, ”ii”, “uu”.
Short vowel saoond wil bee singel leter.
Soft vowel saond wil bee indikated bii too vowels, as in “sound” – “saoond”.

No dubul konsonants.
No “e” on the end of a werd – eksept “the”.


Ther ar sum problemz with this sistem.

The leter “y” is won.
On the end of a werd it has the saond of a long “ee”.
Liik “many”, “city”, “pretty”, etc.
Under mii rools the long saond of a vowel wil bee indikated bii the dubel leter “ee”.
So, “many” beekumz “menee”, “city” beekumz “sitee”, and “pretty” beekumz “pritee”.
But mii sens of ekonomee haats to ad leters too werds, wich maaks them longer.
I kud yooz “y” insted of “ii” in all werdz but I haat to braak mii rool.
And if I did, it wud giv “y” too diferent saoonds – “ee” and “ii” – not konsistant.

The long “oo” saond and the long “uu” saoond ar the saam.
So wich won doo wee yooz?
Doo wee riit “doo” or “duu”?
Is it “soo” or “suu”?
Or “fool” or “fuul”.
Mii plan now is too yooz the vowel that the kurrent speling yoozes – most of the tiim.
Taak the werd “pocket”.
Under mii rools it wud bee speled “pahket”.

“Look” shud bee pronaoonsed “luuk”, but akording too mii noo rools. (dubel vowel is the long sound), the speling shud be “luak” (Not long saoond liik “luke” or short saoond liik “luck”)
In the new way, “luke” wud bee speled “look” and “luck” wud bee speled “luak”.

This stiil gives mii spel cheker fits, but wons yoo get yoosd too riiting liik this, it is hard too go bak too the current method.

The end.

If I recall correctly, didn't Ben Franklin attempt to simplify spelling of our English language?
I recommend that anyone truly interested in pursuing a radical change to phonetic spelling take a look-see at this particular Web site and consider the several points it makes: http://www.washedashore.com/rants/spelling/index.html
