But the SWF does exactly that, dumb down. For example it assumes that  
learners will not know when to write a 'c' and when to write a 'k', it  
assumes that learners will be unable to follow the rule that a final  
'f' must be given a 'v' sound.

The only reason that the Review Board decided to 'dumb up' on this  
issue is because medial 'gh' is part of Kernewek Kemyn.
