Re: FOOD WORDS USED AS SLANG

Note some dialects use /bʊlbə/ for "potato", but those that use /kar'tofl̩/ use it as ...

Re: English Orthography Reform

@Zé : I'm aware that English has homophones which are also homographs, and I agree that context usually clears up any ambiguity between two meanings (especially when the two meanings belong to different parts of speech, like your examples of "kind" and "to"). I'm saying that in the (relatively rare...

Re: English Orthography Reform

I cannot recall any minimal pairs in English that distinguish syllabic versus non-syllabic liquids, so I doubt this will cause more confusion in comparison. I'm aware that there are two- and three-syllable pronunciations of "interest." Does anyone distinguish in speech between the financial and emo...

Apart from the overthrow of the not-really-used-by-the-layman-anyway Runes, there has never been a total overhaul of English spelling.
