    Hey, you little people saying that q,x,c should be dropped. You’re right. But Y, J, and W should also be dropped for ioung, dzhon, and uuater.Ee should be too. And silent e. And gh as in night, fright. Ng should be replaced as well. ń will do. Ou should be dropped for u. Gh, should be changed to f as in enough, tough. X should be dropped as in refleks, zylophone. Le for l, as in littl, kettl. Double letters should be dropped as in litl, kelt. Short o for a, draped, tafi. Instead of long letters because of silent e we could just add a macron. Sh should be dropped for ś. Er for r. Ey for ā. Ź for th as in they, though. Ż for th as in thin, thunder. Uōnt ińliś bi betr līk żis?

  • Teslablade

    Is it sad that i use "æ" for some words still? A classic that i use is Cæsium, since "Cesium" should definitely be pronounced like that, and not close to "Césium".

  • DominicBosek

    We still use œ in the French language.

  • Delatine

    If you use "þ" as an æsthetic lowercæse (probably used that one wroŋ) "B", þink again.......see what I did þere?

  • SomeRussianGuy

  • pantaloons ex

    So that's what & is called. Ampersand

  • Jesse Cawley

    In classical Latin, the v was pronounced both as a u and w. Veni vidi vici was pronounced weni widi wiki, with a hard c because c was always hard like k, never like s or ch.

  • David

    Russian could handle the letter з but English couldn't??


    5:54 So that's why amoeba is pronounced a-mee-ba

  • Pexi Rex

    German (which is actually very close to English) kept a few of these letters.The "long s" is basically the English equivalent for the ß. The æ is basically äThe œ is the ö And there is even ü which is pronounced similar to how french people pronounce u.The more you know.

  • Jamie Wells

    Omg wait ‘Ethel’ is kinda like the English version of the French trying to fuck us over because the French was like hey see this word ‘hostel’ yeah we are gonna take out the s so it’s ‘hotel’ but put a fancy sign on it so it really says ‘hostel’ but we are gonna spell it like ‘hôtel’ and if that didn’t fuck you over enough we are going to change it back so it’s spelt ‘hostel’ but maybe so you don’t know what the fuck you’re doing!

  • Pink Sylveon
