Re: English Orthography Reform

Well, the "iur (your)" there is second person plural. That spelling is basically IPA with <sh ng ...> and <r> for both schwa and rhotic and not distinguishing semivowels from vowels. And what it transcribed is heavy mandarin accent minus epenthetic vowels, tones, and coda consonant dropping, so : '...

Re: English Orthography Reform

Do you think reforming English spelling to be both accurately etymological (e.g. stone becomes stoan because it derives from Old English stān and the silent e isn't etymological) and regular enough to be able to make out a word's pronunciation from it's spelling (so there's no more things such as b...

Re: English Orthography Reform

True about "ich." But, that's a bit different because "ich" may've been a holdover from German, where it's survived to this day. Evry germanic word in english is a holdover from german sumhow, after all the angloes came from the area between Germany and Denmark, and the saxons came from Germany (or...

Re: English Orthography Reform

Hot take: English orthography reform is already happening, and you've probably engaged in it without noticing it. If you've ever spelled homogenous then yes, you're a part of the process. Just start with a few words, spelling them closer to your pronunciation. Just don't make it too obvius and you'...

Re: English Orthography Reform

I'm actually not convinced that that's the case. I've been thinking about this a bit in the context of a SF world of mine - in which there have indeed been a number of successful orthography reforms for English. I think there are three key obstacles to a reform: a) weirdness of the resulting spelli...

Re: If English used diacritics

Let's face it: no reform actually stands much of a chance. Some informal spellings like "thru" or "nite" might gradually gain more ground, so that at some point, they'll start replacing the traditional spellings even in more formal contexts... but I wouldn't bet on it, especially not in the reasona...

Only certain nouns do. It largely lines up with the nouns which undergo the same process in Dutch (e.g: god->goden, schot->schoten) Dat is recht komish.

Good to see you're still trundling along with the project! It's looking a lot more Germanic anymore. Or rather, even more Europantoish than before! (Good joke, too!)

Re: Lapdeutsch

God and Schot are spelled with single consonants in order to reflect that when an ending is added to them, the vowel lengthens. Otherwise these words would alternate between having a single consonant and a double consonant in different forms of the word. Worüm wart de vokal lang wenn disse wör en e...
