Good advice!

Therez alwayz this inspiring talk about making the world a better place coming frum politicianz and various celebritiez, usually addressing an auditorium full uv kidz. But az soon az you try to actually change sumthing thats obviously in need uv improvement, everybody starts shouting about respect for tradition, naive optimizm, established time tested bla bla bla.

To quote George Bernard Shaw, "Reazonable peepl adapt themselvez to the world. Unreazonable people attempt to adapt the world to themselvez. All progress, therefore, dependz on unreazonable peepl."

I admit to a considerable investment in the 20th century English verse, which gives a predisposition to knee jerk mockery such as above, but...
1.GB Shaw spent a considerable amount of effort on a similar project, and my “dyslexic” brother invented his own syllabary, where “predisposition” would be transcribed as “pree-diss-pose-sit-shun”, and “dyslexic” as “dice-leak-sick” so you are in company I like, and...
2.Your target audience is not native speaking, but those trying to learn a second language, so the objections of the native speakers are largely “ear-rev-veil-ant”
3.As far as their objections as to the difficulty of relearning do have validity, I suspect we exaggerate. Years of reading my brother's missives, and remedial students English papers, as well as studies on the actual process of reading, reassure me that the difficulties mentioned are manageable by minds which look at the first and last letters of a word and guess from context what comes between. Considerable...
4.Texting. Which brings us to the point of my specifying my language is “20th century English” and the original objections. However, I consider English to be a dead language, a fact not generally noticed because all English speakers are dead. I speak American. I also read it, and I read English as well. The writings as the past slip into obscurity, as meanings change. Shakespeare would find modern “English” far more incomprehensible than we find him, and even Shaw would be badly confused.
5.Last point. You are not proposing everything be rewritten, thank goodness. You are proposing something like Basic English, a learning tool. Good Luck

Ummmm, I haven't noticed your new form of spelling taking over the English speaking world. Maybe a little premature to be comparing yourself to Mike Tyson!

I'm feeling as if I'm dealing with one of Winston's YouTube Genius types here :roll:

I have to stop, I simply don't need the added stress such stupidity brings to life.
