Re: Deb, Nat, and Brian's Thread of Grammar Shame.

What a fun thread. I have no time to read through it right now...but I will soon.

"Work like you don't need the money, Sing like nobody's listening, Dance like nobody's watching, Love like you've never been hurt." - Mark Twain

Through this world I've stumbled, So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find, The truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles, And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one, To hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after, I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Re: Deb, Nat, and Brian's Thread of Grammar Shame.

From the same illiterate special interest group that brought us ebonics and helped dumb down America's educational system

Group: We should spell it the way we say it
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

July 10, 2006

WASHINGTON - 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.

It's been 100 years since Andrew Carnegie helped create the Simplified Spelling Board to promote a retooling of written English and President Theodore Roosevelt tried to force the government to use simplified spelling in its publications. But advocates aren't giving up.

They even picket the national spelling bee finals, dressed as bumblebees and hoisting signs saying "Enuf is enuf but enough is too much" or "I'm thru with through."

They say the bee celebrates the ability of a few students to master a difficult system that stumps many others who could do just as well if spelling was simpler.

"It's a very difficult thing to get something accepted like this," says Alan Mole of the American Literacy Council, which favors an end to "illogical spelling." The group says English has 42 sounds spelled in a bewildering 400 ways.

Proponents of simpler spelling note that a smattering of altered spellings have made the leap to everyday use. Doughnut also is donut; colour, honour and labour long ago lost the British "u" and the similarly derived theatre and centre have been replaced by the easier-to-sound-out theater and center.

E-mail and text messages are exerting a similar influence. They share some elements with the simplified spelling movement but differ in other ways, such as stressing shortcuts like "u" more than phonetics.

"The kinds of progress that we're seeing are that someone will spell night 'nite' and someone will spell through 'thru,"' Mole said. "We try to show where these spellings are used and to show dictionary makers ... so they will include them as alternate spellings."

Lurning English reqierz roet memory rather than lojic, he sed.

In languages with phonetically spelled words, like German or Spanish, children learn to spell in weeks instead of months or years as is sometimes the case with English, Mole said.

But learning would be disrupted if children had to switch to a different spelling system, said Michael Marks, a member of the executive committee of the National Education Association, the nation's largest teachers union. "It may be more trouble than it's worth," he said.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Dubya would have a whole other language. I guess he has one already though.

Once we're ready, I'm certain you're going to enjoy the best user experience ever on this site; making the rough past few days well worth it. As I said earlier, MTF is pretty much complete in terms of maintenance. There might be the occasional short interruption, but for the large part, the really difficult work has now been successfully concluded.
