You shoud read about the history uv English. Its a fasinating story uv war, teknolojy, relijun, bad luck, politics, more war and random events. Hardly anything about problem solving. The Story uv English

How difficult would it be for deaf people to learn Nooalf? Specifically deaf people who were deaf since birth. They have no notion of what something sounds like, thus Nooalf would seem useless to them.

Nooalf is a crackpot concept - plain and simple. It's worse than Ebonics! The standardized spelling of the English language is the way to go - especially, as pointed out above, there are deaf people to consider. There has never been strict conformity between any written language and its spoken version. Take Latin, for instance; there was a wide variance between the written language and the language spoken on the streets, so much of a difference that the written language, Classical Latin, is deemed a literary language, while the spoken language, Vulgar Latin, is known only through graffiti and the letters of the uneducated. Nooalf reads like those letters: the writing of the pathetically ignorant.

What study does that 1000x come from?
Look, I don't care how hard it is to learn how to spell. Let the little bastards struggle. It'll do them good. Me, I'd bring back good penmanship as a requirement, never mind being able to spell: good penmanship, correct spelling, proper grammar - and a proper and clear understanding of syntax. And they'd sit in elementary school until they were old and gray until they passed the standardized tests - no social promotions - a 70 year-old third grader, if necessary. Your status as an adult would not depend on your age but on your having a high school diploma - and you'd bust your ass getting one! Spelling, grammar, punctuation, nice penmanship ... advanced algebra, logic, and you'd be certified fluent in 2 foreign languages ... So, I'm not for letting people off the hook easily.

It kumz frum the study wich showz that the typical collej grad haz a vocabulary uv about 35,000 wordz and the spelling uv each had to be memorized individually. Thats more than 1,000x the number uv letterz in the Nooalf system. And sins wordz are about 5 letterz on averaj, each wun takes much longer to memorize than each uv the nooalf letterz, so 1,000x iz a gross underestimate.

And very few collej gradz are actually able to correctly spell all the wordz they no, so they woud need to go back to grammar skool wen your plan iz impledemented. At an averaj cost uv 10,000$ per student per semester, that will be very expensiv. I segjest you employ the Minisota Spankalojikl Protocol nationwide to akselerate their education to hopefully keep the cost lower than the GDP.

Find a kindergarten teacher willing to let you test her class. Hav them rite the wordz you say. Sea whow meney off theym ged 100% coreqt. THEN! Move up to 1st grade, 2nd, 3rd etc.

Even if you stick to basic, hi rate common wordz, you mite NEVER get to a grade in wich all the students get 100%.

Its a pure referens system; you dont THINK about spelling with sum sorta lojik, you recall a standard.

I dont think so. They can just read and see 'therez an E on this line in the last word just like the last line' and understanding the konsept uv riming, can get sum idea uv how a poem works.

You cant really imajin sumthing you never had sensory experiens with. Did you see Ex Machina? Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) tellz a little story about Mary, who livez in a black & wite room and iz tot everything there iz to no about color, but never seez it until the day they let her outside.

Ya I was thinking about it ~ silence is the
only victim as it isn't heard by the living.
You have to be dead to hear it. That's
probably why death is soooo suductivr ~
for the silence. I don't actually hear voices.

For the most part, they wouldn't have to if schools still taught Latin and Greek word roots. Schools did not when my daughter was attending; I taught them to her during a year of home-schooling (necessitated by a chronic medical issue). Her elementary school's idea of teaching spelling was a ridiculously time-consuming "spelling packet" due at the end of each week. Each packet included 25 words which the student had to use at least five different ways, such as in a sentence, accompanied by an illustration, made into an acrostic, etc. Time-wasting nonsense.

This is more an excoriation of the current state of public education than it is of standard English spelling. In my city, I personally know two families that had to fight the School Board to have their children kept back. Both children were scheduled to be automatically promoted to the next grade—peer promotion—and both families quite rightly felt it was stupid to expose their children to more advanced material when they hadn't grasped the foundational material.

The problem with the typical college graduate having a vocabulary of 35,000 words is that he should have never been allowed to graduate high school...and probably not been promoted to high school from grammar school. A college student should not require a course entitled "Freshman English Composition." You should not be still learning your native language in college. If you cannot write coherently—using proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation—you don't belong in college.

I do see a few issues with Nooalf, to be honest, quite aside from my knee-jerk distaste, which I'm ignoring. (I must also admit that I didn't read the entire 12-page thread, so you may have already addressed some or all of these.)

• Nooalf eliminates the recognizable word roots from which it's possible to deduce the meanings of unfamiliar words. Let's say, for example, that I don't know the word "recognizable." Fortunately, I know my words roots, so I can puzzle out the meaning:
re = again
cogn = know
iz = cause, become
able = able to be
Therefore, recognizable = able to become known again. :mrgreen:
I believe Nooalf would render it as "ReKUGNiZUBUL." Is that correct in ASCII form? All those word roots are now gone, except "re" and "iz." Now I can no longer deduce the meaning.

• If Nooalf's spelling is based on pronunciation, how will this result in global standardization? Won't it end up with me (from New England) spelling aluminum like this: ULQMINUM, and a Brit spelling it like this: aLYQMINEUM, thus creating more confusion in written communication between dialects? I'm imagining chaos in the Massachusetts State House as politicians from the East end of the State insist the phrase is "PoK XU Ko," while the West end ones maintain it's "PaRK XU KaR." How will ESL speakers deal with this, given they will be speaking accented English?

• We can't even get the US to switch from standard to metric measures, a change that is nearly 100% positive; how do you plan to implement Nooalf in a population with a knee-jerk dislike for change?

Again, I apologize if you've already addressed these issues. If so, a link to your previous post would be awesome and appreciated. ;)
