How about changing all nouns to Marklar, like in South Park?
Simon   Monday, March 03, 2003, 16:16 GMT
Then we wouldn't have any marklars in communicating with marklar. And every marklar would be able to understand each other, without having to learn each other's marklars. Think of the marklars! No more marklars. Still, it might put a few marklars out of a marklar but they'd find other marklars because marklar would increase marklar.

I think that it might be a good marklar. But what if I get my marklar mixed up with my marklar? Then we would all be marklared........

This is kind of like sex without foreplay. Only men would be for it.

Why duu yuu think so?

I don't necessarily think that a reform is a bad idea. Many times I have wondered why some words are pronounced differently than they look. But I have been speaking and reading English for so long as it is written now, it would be more confusing to read phonetically than the messed up way it is now.

I am currently working on a project to make the English language more "English." For example, "mutton" is a French word for the meat of a lamb. So, I used a compound to come up with a very simple word for mutton; "lamb-meat." So, "pork" would be "pig-meat" and "beef" would be "cow-meat."

I don't think lessening the pool of vocabulary words is a good idea. I suppose it would make things more simple, but we'd lose out on many words that enrich the language.

I would not be taking away any words; I would just be replacing French origin words for English origin words or compound words.

that just sounds funny. "Today we are having pig-meat chops, and tomorrow we will have cow-meat steak." I don't know how you can even say that with a straight face.
