This spelling reform and many others keep the capital letters and many or all of the same rules for them, but there was this one spelling reform that had an idea to get rid of all the capital letters. I really think that's a weird and not a good idea. If they threw away capitals, you wouldn't know where there's a name. Of course this spelling reform gives a new rule for one of the capital letter words. The word ''I'' that is always spelled with a capital. They spell it ''ie''.
There's this one spelling reform called ''Fanetiks'' that keeps the appostrophies in the contractions.
Allow me to correct something. It is not true that ''ow'' and ''oy'' include a consonant. The letters "w" and "y" are not consonants but letters. I can understand their reluctance to include them but if you don't you can end up with some funny looking stuff. The word "player", for example, should come out as "plaeur". My respelling would keep "player".
Yep, I guess it's true that the words would look really crazy without them.
prayer-, noun-prer verb-praeur
Yep, they'd look really really crazy.
They respelled the ''and/or' thing as ''andor'' that doesn't sound very good.
The spelling reforms ''fanetiks'' and ''truespel'' don't like the idea of consonants in letters representing a vowel sound either.
They reform the words ''tour'' ''poor and ''your'' as tor, por and yor. they reform the words ''sure'', ''mature'' and plural as ''shur'', ''muchur'' and ''plurul''.
I say "tour" closer to how the French say the word (yes, there is a french word "tour" but it does not have the same meaning).
There are two tours in French:
Le tour - turn etc.
La tour - tower
