An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Write English as We Speak it?

Isnt it time we spelt the English words as we spoke them? So "To" and "Go" could rhyme? The question that Dharmendra – the Indian Cine Actor – asked in that famous dialog in the movie "Chupke Chupke" is indeed a relevant one! Imajin it Hapening?

When “say,” “they” and “weigh” rhyme, but “bomb,” “comb” and “tomb” don’t, wuudn’t it maek mor sens to spel wurdz the wae thae sound?

Those in favor of simplified spelling say children would learn faster and illiteracy rates would drop. Opponents say a new system would make spelling even more confusing.

Eether wae, the consept has yet to capcher th publix imajinaeshun.
