Willy, Who's talking about spelling reform in this thread. You are the first person to mention spelling reform. Only talk about spelling reform in threads that actually have to do with spelling reform. Why don't you start a new thread about spelling reform?
And then you can talk about spelling reform there.
Many words from German are in English. As "heist" that means to steal.
A spelling reform can teach how to pronounce as it is really. Eliminating the disparities of spelling.
pint as "peint"
mint as "mint"
answer as "anser"
light as "leit" Why do some people spell "lite"? English is from Germanic roots, not from Celtic dialects. Why is e silent? It's just to make i sound as 'ah-ee. I think "ei" simply.
receipt as "resït"
debt as "det"
pet as ''pet'', not ''pebt'' as in ''debt''. It's a crazy language.
