lets keep serius and dont start flaming
I don't understand why you keep saying things like this. All the comments so far have been serious and civil and I don't see any reason to expect that to change. Am I missing something?
Okay, I'm trying to get my count restored, so I'll try to get up as soon as I can. You can mention that the doubling of the vowels was inspired by Dutch and by the IPA, which has this as a varied form of the lengthening of a vowel. <c> is already used in English as the <sh> sound: commercial, musician amongst others. Also I figured that we can use it as a fricative, that isn't the alveolar.
It's not c
which represents /ʃ/ in these words, it's the digraph ci
. That's an important distinction. Otherwise why not argue that since oi
represents the /oi/ sound as in boil
, therefore o
alone would be just as good?
Also, we weren't aiming for a superdialect, just way of writing English phonetically, without introducing new letters.
Clearly--and that's a serious flaw for a reformed orthography.
