    Push for simpler spelling persists

    When "say," "they" and "weigh" rhyme, but "bomb," "comb" and "tomb" don't, wuudn't it maek mor sens to spel wurdz the wae thae sound?

    Those in favor of simplified spelling say children would learn faster and illiteracy rates would drop. Opponents say a new system would make spelling even more confusing.

    Eether wae, the consept has yet to capcher th publix imajinaeshun.
    Thae sae th bee selebraets th ability of a fue stoodents to master a dificult sistem that stumps meny utherz hoo cuud do just as wel if speling were simpler.

    I'm still bracing for the U.S.'s switch to the metric system.

    I have been using this spelling system for a while now. As a youth my parents signed me up for an experimental program. Once you learn it problem is readjusting to traditional way of spelling.

    Sometimes on my posts here you may notice those transition problems.
