Re: I'd Like to See Phonetic Irish

I don't think Salmoneus was joking. As you said yourself, the rules of Irish spelling are very systematic, so why can't you create your own phonetic spelling system?

Was the <h> original ally a fricative?
Certainly not. The fricatives were never allies of <h>. They have been rivals for as long as anyone can remember.

And the <h> was not originally a fricative, no.
