Simple English equals Simplish!

400 years ago in the 16th century English underwent an amazing transformation. In the 400 years since English has grown to be one of the main languages in the world. Why is that? Because English is an absorptive language. It meets new words from different cultures and absorbs them into English as English words. E.g. bungalow is and far eastern Indian word, tomahawk is an American Indian word. These are two easy translations where the spelling has fitted fairly simply in existing English. The primary problem with this is that the spelling has been absorbed as spoken in the foreign language, instead of being phonetically translated. Each absorption of a foreign word tends to create an “exception” If it weren’t for the exceptions to the rules of English it would be a much simpler language to learn and thus a much stronger candidate for the upcoming “universal Language”.

Take an example of an exception that is really hard for new English speakers (including english speaking school children) “I Before E except after C” This extremely confusing even for many adult writers of English. Then there are non-vowels like C and S, Curtain and Certain should be written as pronounced as Kurtain and Surtain. When you look into it, C is actually a superfluous letter having no sound of it own. CH is also pronounced a SH and K as in Chute and Christmas! Which should of course be spelled as Shoot and Kristmas!

I propose that the letter C have all sounds stripped from it and it be given the sound of CH, so Church is now spelled CurC! All other sounds attributed to C such as S and K will be attributed to those letters. This makes much better, more logical sense than the way it is now sounding – a confused hodje-podje of sounds that each have to be painfully memorised. It wouldn’t take long to remember the new sounds! Within a matter of months they would become subconscious and after 5 years people will find it hard to remember how they used to be pronounced! so..

church = CurC

certain = Sertain

curtain = Kurtain

 Take these sounds and put them into a sentence…

 “In kristcurc, the earthquake damage means many homes are without kurtains, that’s for sertain!”

 It’s not that hard, is it? It’s not like we have to learn a whole new language from the start! All we have to do is adopt modifications to the way we write by making the spelling sound like the way it is said. Already texting has started this trend – txting is gr8!

 Of course there will be all sorts of objections from the nay-sayers, but when have they ever been right? I remember years ago (in the early 1970s) the motorbike assoshiashuns kuming out the the rekomendashion that motorsyklists drive with their headlights on at all times. This was really sound advise and I, and most others, started using it immediately. The polise nay-sayers however, came out with, “It is unnesesary and won’t save lives.” It took thirty years for them to turn around and start rekomending this as a safe practise. Then about two years ago they started rekomending it as safe practise for kars on dark. rainy days! I here some countries have made it law to drive with lights on 24/7!

 Can you see the other simplish rules kreeping in, in the above writing example. Canging the dictionary will be simple with computers! Learning English will become far simpler with students able to learn in whole groups of words fonetikally..

 – ood                 -oot

hood,                   hoot

kood,                   koot (like the animal/birds)

wood,

shood,                 shoot

I’d like to call out to volunteers to help me set up the recommendations for Simplish (whic is simple Fonetic English) If you’ve got a love of the English language and would like to help make it simpler then Email me on reverendjiam@hotmail.com

perhaps with some ideas of your own as well!

 

 

 

 

About reverendjiam

Namaste I am a master metaphysician , an artist and a lover of life and people. I was given a new organisation - the Wholistic Peace and Prosperity Network - in an epiphany in 1992. I have spent all the time since then struggling to get it started. It was started three years ago and now has 3 members. This year will see us expand to 100 members and then we'll be launched! in the future it will spread world wide and even to our colonies in space! Since writing this I have been promoted to the level of Peacemaker. Apparently there are only seven in this class in the world at the moment. I was promoted when Nelson Mandela died and am amongst greats like John Lennon, Gandhi and The Dalai Lama. Each of us have our own particular task. Mine is to teach Peace (the state of Poor) and Prosperity (the state of Abundance), to lift people up above the negative material state into a state of heavenly BEingness, called Wealth. J'iam
