        Hi all! I thought I’d add to the giggles that Shannon gave us with her English spoof.
        Enjoy, Debby :)

        Having chosen English as the preferred language in the EEC (now officially
        the European Union, or EU), the European Parliament has commissioned a
        feasibility study in ways of improving efficiency in communications
        between Government departments. European officials have often pointed out
        that English spelling is unnecessarily difficult; for example: cough,
        plough, rough, through and thorough. What is clearly needed is a phased
        programme of changes to iron out these anomalies. The programme would, of
        course, be administered by a committee staff at top level by participating

        In the first year, for example, the committee would suggest using ‘s’
        instead of the soft ‘c’. Sertainly, sivil servants in all sities would
        resieve this news with joy. Then the hard ‘c’ could be replaced by ‘k’sinse
        both letters are pronounsed alike. Not only would this klear up konfusion in
        the minds of klerikal workers, but typewriters kould be madewith one less

        There would be growing enthusiasm when in the sekond year, it was anounsed
        that the troublesome ‘ph’ would henseforth be written ‘f’. This would make
        words like ‘fotograf’ twenty persent shorter in print.

        In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to
        reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments
        would enkourage the removal of double letters which have
        always been a deterent to akurate speling.We would al agre that the horible
        mes of silent ‘e’s in the languag is
        disgrasful. Therefor we kould drop thes and kontinu to read and writ as
        though nothing had hapend. By this tim it would be four years sins the skem
        began and peopl would be reseptive to steps sutsh as replasing ‘th’ by ‘z’.
        Perhaps zen ze funktion of ‘w’ kould be taken on by ‘v’, vitsh is, after al,
        half a ‘w’. Shortly after zis, ze unesesary ‘o’ kould be dropd from words
        kontaining ‘ou’. Similar arguments vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations
        of leters.

        Kontinuing zis proses yer after yer, ve vud eventuli hav a reli sensibl
        riten styl. After tventi yers zer vud be no mor trubls, difikultis and
        evrivun vud fin it ezi tu understand ech ozer. Ze drems of the guvermnt vud
        finali hav kum tru.
