    Oh I see, a big fan of reading. Why have you NOT done any corrections in your reading and writing.

    & seems to have moved from a letter to a symbol, which seems to make sense as it's only ever used on its own even when it was a letter. I want the one that means that to make a comeback though! Add it to the mobile phone keyboard! Make that new phone worth 1k$!!!

    Nah 26 characters is adequate for the English language. Add too many characters and you end up in the ridiculous situation the Chinese are in with their language.

    The beautiful velar fricative (Praise me for my intelligence ok thank) sound made by the yogh is still present in the few standardized modern English variants. As far as I can tell, it's only in one word, though: "ugh." It probably was prevented from change due to being an onomatopœia. Anyway, bring back þœ redjected symbols because þei are cool. U3. Not hard. Oh, wrong yogh. Sorry.

    X is useless because it can be replaced by KS or CS (or sometimes Z)
    Q is useless because it can be replaced by KW
    PH combination is useless because it can be replaced by F
    C is useless because it can be replaced by either K or S, as the case may be.
