Joe suggests ''both-bothe''
A ''the'' at the end of a word makes it look like the ''th'' should be voiced. How about ''boath''?
Earlier in the thread ''choklit'' was suggested and Jim asked, Why not ''choclat''. Because it's [Tsa:klit] not [Tsa:kl@t]. I'm not sure what [Tsa:kl@t] is.
Quote-''TO MAKE A LONG VOWEL SHORT''
Here we have Joe respelling what in traditional orthography are long vowels as short vowels. This may work for his accent but I use the long vowels that traditional orthography suggest. As I say [b..ko:s], [je..], [fo:tSu:n] and [bi:n] the original spellings are better for me. I say [b..k^z], [je], [fo:rtS..n] and [bin].
What if we replaced this ''a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, z'' with this a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, z, þ, ð, æ.
Suppose we brought back the letters thorn, eth and ash.
Letters and the sounds they make.
c-cello, chime, chair become ''cello'', ''cime'' and ''cair''.
k-cat, cash, kit become ''kæt'', ''kæsh'' and ''kit''.
x-genre, measure, beige ''become'' ''xonra'', ''mexxer'' and ''beix''
ð-that, this, there
æ-cat, cap, bat, valley.
Here's how this sentence comes out.
''They are going to play the cello while in the chair and they saw the cat and five cents and measured that thing yesterday so they could fix it quickly.''
''ðey are going to play ðe cello while in ðe cair ænd ðey saw ðe kæt ænd five sents ænd mexxered ðæt þing yesterday so ðey kould fiks it kwikly.''
''latter'' would become ''læter''. The ''t'' would not need to be doubled because the letter ''ash'' is always pronounced [@].
"What my father told the court he had wanted was not to be caught with a quart of water in the cot of his daughter all hidden away in the cart of his brother."
Comes out as,
''What my faððer told ðe kourt he had wanted was not to be kaught with a kort (or "kwort") of water in ðe cot of his daughter all hidden away in ðe cart of his bruððer''.
What do you þink about ðis?
''cot'' and ''cart'' should be ''kot'' and ''kart''.
Wrong idea, Thorn, eth, and ash!
They're as they are, yet.
Why is "ul" better than "ol", "el", "al" and "le"? How about "-juse" or "juce" instead of "-joose"
How about ''Jooss''.
Are these better,
How about these,
I pronounce "towards" (or "toward") as a two syllable word [t..wo:d(z)]. Also I pronounce the second "a" in "caramel" as [..]. I say [k@r..m.l] so the original spelling is better.
I pronounce ''towards'' and ''caramel'' as [to:rdz] and [ka:rm..l].
Quote-''THE "O" WORDS
''The vowel in these words is [o] not [^] for me so none of these work in my accent. Here's a better way of writing them for me.''
The vowel in these words is [^] not [a:] for me.
I pronounce them [fr^m], [^v], [w^z], [w^nt], and [w^t].
Quote-YOU SAY TOMAYTO I SAY TOMAHTO
''None of these work for me and here's why.
tomato = [t..ma:tOu]
new = [nju:]
species = [spi:si(:)z]
pecan = [pi:k@n]
route = [ru:t]
twenty = [twenti(:)]
realtor = [ri:..lt..]
phonetic = [fonetik]''
I pronounce them,
tomato = [t..meitOu]
new = [nu:]
pecan = [p..ka:n]
route = [raut]
twenty = [tw^nti(:)]
realtor = [ri:l..t..r]
phonetic = [f..netik]
