You demonstrate the extent to which a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
Roosevelt never attempted to make phonetic spelling the law,

Agreed.
The President cannot make "the law"
but he is the executive dept. and has power
to tell federal employees what to do.
That is what executive orders r about.

It does not appear that he enforced his order.
Perhaps Congress stopped him, as I had been informed.


Quote:

and Congress was not involved in what was basically a case of the employees
of the Federal government ignoring something they considered silly.

U say that Congress was not involved.
I read somewhere that it was.
Research it if u feel like it.
I m not gonna bother.

Quote:

It is hilarious to see you call me a conservative, though--quite entertaining,

That 's Y I said it.

especially coming from someone with an unhealthy obsessional fixation on fire arms who usually rants at me for being in the grip of liberal delusions.

Your nonsense about spelling the word "they" as "thay" is bootless because it assumes that people who use the Roman alphabet

No. I 'm limiting my attention to English,
except to admire Spanish cleverness in pronouncing
their words as thay spell them,
so that spelling comes as naturally as digesting their food.



Quote:

see the letter "a" and automatically ascribe to it the "long a" sound.

I use short " a "s too; as in " what has that cat sat on ? "

Quote:

That is not only not true of all people who use the Roman alphabet,
Quote:

Again,
I 'm limiting my attention to a better way
of spelling English.




Quote:

it is not even true of all native speakers of English. You claim "2" can't be used for the word "too" because it could be confused for "to" or "two"--and yet you use "u" for the word "you," even though it could be confused for "yew"

Technically, u r correct,
but we have so little need of referring to yew,
beyond the context of archery, that it is negligible.


Quote:

or simply the indication of the letter "u." Your allegedly more efficiently and logical spelling is no such thing,
it is simply a conceit, and a simple-minded conceit, at that.


How can it possibly be conceit
within a context of anonymity ?

I merely wish to popularize a better way.
( Your attempt to read my mind was not successful. )

More examples of the idiocy of your alleged "more logical" spelling system.
You use "wud" and "cud" for "would" and "could." But how is someone with this new, ostensibly simplified

Do u DENY that it is more SIMPLE ?





Quote:

spelling to know that "cud" means "could," and not the word "cud," which exists in its own right?

Our recourse to what cows chew
is so infrequent as almost to have fallen into obsolescence
and desuetude. ( Now u 'll say something about farmers, I suppose. )





Quote:

How is one to know, with such an allegedly intuitive system, if "wud" means "would" or "wood?"

As u say, correctly, below: by "convention".
"Wood" wud have to remain unchanged.






Quote:

The only way to answer those problems is to establish convention, which is precisely what is in use now,

Yes,
but the conventions need to be upgraded to repair defects;
like cars r " in use now " but u have to get them fixed ofen enuf;
don 't u think ?





Quote:

so that one knows the words "through" and "threw" have different meanings.

Once again, you spelling silliness is not intuitively more logical or efficient--it is just a puerile conceit.

Bear in mind that I do NOT represent that
my spelling is absolutely devoid of any imperfection;
I merely assert that your way of spelling is much WORSE; MUCH STUPIDER,
altho mine is open to refinement n improvement.

Its not shouting.

Its just use of boldface for better visibility,
together with occasional emfasis upon a word,
to bring out my meaning.

It does quite starkly show how inconsistent and hypocritical your spelling gestapo conceit is, as well . . .
