    Yes I agree but I do suffer from slight dyslexia so the last two letters do get exchanged so I am screwed either way. Work in construction and the last 2 numbers, I don't know how many times I have cut a piece 45" at 54" and vice versea

    It goes to show that the mind does not work the way it is common to think it does. and that reading does not even work the way you woudl think it does.

    Letters are only symbols for sounds of speech. But without writing which only man does. the mind needs to process visual and audible information, not symbols. And those have an almost infinite variability to them. a banging noise can mean anything from danger to dinner. And the mind must be able to quickly interpret any one of hundreds of possible variations in between.

    Making it into something as simple as a single symbol is actually dumbing it down way to much for those with Dyslexia. Even as the post above says. quit thinking and looking so much and just read. If your brain kicks in to much you are goign to have trouble with it. Your brain was made to deal with far more complex things than a curly line on a piece of paper. and dyslexics can't seem to find that idol switch so they can read even correctly spelt things.

    The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English
    will be the official language of the European Union rather than German,
    which was the other possibility.


    As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that
    English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year
    phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".


    In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will
    make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in
    favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one
    less letter.


    There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the second year when the
    troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like
    fotograf 20% shorter.


    In the 3rd 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 ben a
    deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the
    silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.


    By the 4th yer peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with
    "z" and "w" with "v". During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd
    from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil
    sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil
    find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum
    tru.


    If zis mad you smil pleas pas on to oza pepl.


    Zen ve vil rul ze world!!

    Well, I think correct spelling is extremely important. I have thought so since the day I left my wife a note saying I was going to town to get bread. When I returned, she was packing to leave me, all because I had left out one little A.
