    The problem with spelling phonetically is that how you pronounce certain words is quite, quite different from how I pronounce them. So whose spelling would be correct?

    All things considered, I don't think it's a veree gud ideer.

    yeh basically people have different accents and all your spellings would sound different when to another person. for example this is how i would pronounce some of your spellings and how i would pronouce the proper spelling.

    Kruschyn "Krushine" - Christian "Cristian"
    Geeametree "G-ametree" - Geometry "Geometree"
    Eevnyng "Eev-nineng" - Evening "Eve-ning"
    Dikchyneree "Dick-chy-knee-ree" - Dictionary "Dickt-shon-ary"
    Datch "Dat-shh" - Dutch "Duht-sch"
    Enouf "Enoof" - Enough "Enuff"

    are you a Kiwi by any chance? you pronounce your vowels very perculiarly "perkuliah-ly".

    No, because I know what the letters sound like, for example I know a Y makes a ee sound, although I would not pronounce it as ee but that is too long, maybe one e and a quarter.

    Also you have a pretty weird way of pronouncing words

    its not epol, apple has a strong sound on the app bit from the a, again in clab and club


    The way words are written are necessary as the shape of the word is important in its recognition.

    I am a foreigner that pronounces his As, Es and Us. :)
    English is not my native language.

    I pronounce differently than most people where I live right now.

    Is it possible to make a new dialect of English like this easily and send it to the Dictionary guys?

    This is slightly absurd...on the simple fact of English dialects (as stated above)

    Simple words sound very differently in English...depending on where you live.

    I was born in Pennsylvania...and through my formative years learned to speak there.

    When I moved to Alabama...I learned there were many words people thought I said in a funny way.
    Here is an example...

    Roof (The structure that protects one's house)
    Northern pronunciation: Ruf (The oo sound was very short and cut off like in shirt 'cuff')
    Southern pronunciation: R-oof (The oo sound is longer and more pronounced like in boo. As in many southern words and conversation...there is more of a drawl or "lingering" to certain parts of words)

    There are so many more...we could go for days.

    Your best bet...is to simply learn the proper way for your area. People will understand you, just keep trying. :eek:

    What about words like lov, wat and hous? Don't they make more sense to you than love (don't pronounce the e), what (don't pronounce the h) and house (don't pronounce the e)?

    Also, tee to me makes more sense than tea and wy makes more sense than why.

    I don't understand... Why are we changing these words again? I'm fine with the way it's always been thank you.

    I think you're wrong. Don't words get their sometimes bizarre spelling from their history? Hence the reason why there's there their and they're, no and know, etc. IMO the silent Es and Hs make a hell of a lot more sense than wiping the history of the english language blank because it "makes more sense that way".

    ...and this is why everyone is telling you to Learn English.

    A "tee" is already in the dictionary.

    You could start your own following if enough people agree with you...

    thus why the urban dictionary was started.
    www.urbandictionary.com

    Some of these new meanings to words are commonly accepted...aside from their vulgarity.

    They don't, actually. You would be doing more than changing the spelling of the words, you would be changing the rules of the English language with regard to spelling.

    Euro-english:
    The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.
    As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".
    In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.
    There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.
    In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.
    Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.
    By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".
    During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru. Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas

    ugh, I can't stand when people say ruff instead of roof. Its just not right! If it was meant to be pronounced ruff it would be spelled differently. I also can't stand when people say warsh. Last time I checked, the word wash does NOT have an 'r' in it.

    You think I would just get used to it, living on the east coast and everything, but no.



    And also, I think it would just be easier to learn english. The way things are spelled can sometimes help you know how to pronounce them..like whether there is a silent e on the end can indicate whether the vowels are meant to be short or long in the word.

    Good luck with those ideas. Just start using your new spelling options all the time. I'm sure they'll catch on quickly. Pretty soon people everywhere will be using them. Or not.

    I don't see how you get it. To me, the silent Es and Hs don't make sense.

    Sure, maybe Americans should talk like this because they already butchered the English language and don't have much of a history. :rolleyes:
