A bit early in the morning for that, Ray. A spelling system doesn't have to be a perfect reflection of a language's sound system. But if it's close it helps a great deal in teaching the reading of it! Chris P.

Subject: [Spellyans] Spelling and linguistics - Yes
The following illustrates why a spelling system does not need to be a perfect reflection of linguistics:
A Short Neurological Test
1- Find the C below.. Please do not use any cursor help.
2- If you already found the C, now find the 6 below.
3 - Now find the N below. It's a little more difficult.
This is NOT a joke. If you were able to pass these 3 tests, you can cancel your annual visit to your neurologist. Your brain is great and you're far from having a close relationship with Alzheimer.
eonvrye that can raed this rsaie your hnad.
To my 'selected' strange-minded friends:
If you can read the following paragraph, forward it on to your friends and the person that sent it to you with 'yes' in the subject line.

Ray Chubb comment: The other 45 prefer KK.
I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! If you can raed this forwrad it
FORWARD ONLY IF YOU CAN READ IT
