My gosh I can't spell or even edit. I apologize for my subpar grammer. in my defense, my mom is a child psychologist and she thinks I have a learning disability that prevented me from picking up how to spell when I was in elementry school. I like to think that's the case. Along with that, I've always felt that if the words would just be spelled the way they sound life would be a lot easier. Words used to be spelled the way they sound, then the "great vowel shift" happened and english language pronunciation lost all connection to spelling. I don't see why we don't redo the spelling of all our words to make them actually reflect the sounds. I mean, that's the idea of a phoneticl alphabet as I understand it. If the words aren't going to be spelled like they sound, aren't we really just using chinese/japanese symbol-based written languages?
