The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European communications, rather than German, wich was the other possibility. As part of negotiations,her Majesty Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what will be knows as EuroEnglish (Euro for short). ooo
In the first year "s" will be used instead of the soft "c".
Sertainly, sivil servants will reseive this news with joy. Also, the hard "c" will be replased with "k". Not only will this klear up konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter. ooo
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the troublesome "ph" will be replased by "f". this will make words like " fotograf" ( 20 ) per sent shorter. ooo
In the third 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 been a deterent to akurte speling.
Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent "e"s in the language is disgrasful, and they would go. ooo
By the forth year, people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" by "z" and "w" by "v". During ze fifz year ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd frome vords kontaining "ou" and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters. ooo
