Re: English Orthography Reform

Then I'll return to your assertion about how native speakers of English are defined. You were talking about the whole world. Given the U.S. is part of the whole world, and one of the largest concentrations of native English speakers in the whole world, it stands as a large counterexample to the ide...

Re: English Orthography Reform

The US have a funny way of classifying people anyway, counting hispanics as an own race. Latinos can be blond, colored, black, american indian, asian, but suddenly they're all thrown in the same bin because they speak spanish. And then they say 'caucasians' when they mean light skinned whites, but ...

Re: English Orthography Reform

I think it is quite funny how native speakers are counted: only european or white speakers are counted as native speakers of english or french, ie speakers who speak this or that language as their only language. That's not true. As an example, the U.S. Census doesn't count "native speakers" of lang...

Re: English Orthography Reform

ZdR: "We'll" for me is prototypically /wi@l, and 'wheel' is /wi:l/ (though I think some people have /wI:l/?). In slow speech, it's generally clear which is which. But there is a tendency for them to merge due to l-breaking in 'wheel' from one side and schwa-reduction in 'we'll' from the other. EURO...

Re: English Orthography Reform

I agree that this diaphonemic approach is better than a phonemic approach. But of course, diaphonemic spelling has the disadvantage of making spelling reform largely pointless, in that it takes away the main selling point of reform - making words easy to spell. Diaphonemic spelling means that speak...

Re: FOOD WORDS USED AS SLANG

It's based on the English loanword, which is /kaɹ'tʌfl̩/. In Yiddish it might be /kar'tofl̩/. Note that the /o/ vowel is unstable cross-dialectically, with some realizing it as [ʊ] or [ɔ] or somewhere in between. Note some dialects use /bʊlbə/ for "potato", but those that use /kar'tofl̩/ use it as ...
