English is fast becoming the standard language on Earth. It's time to revise it to make it easier to learn and use. Read how this can be done!
The English language is the language of choice for modern business, international trade, global communication, computer applications, and international travel. It is also the top choice for non-English speakers who study a second language. It is already the de facto standard language for the world and its usage is expanding fast.
Now it's time to remove defects in English. Author Bill Dommett has determined what revisions would vastly improve it for use by the whole world.
English is very imperfect because it is a composite language, having absorbed spelling and grammar from other languages centuries ago, and because of scientific advances, including the introduction of computers.
English is not phonetic, so written and spoken forms don't always agree. Hearing new words won't always indicate the spelling; and seeing new words won't always indicate the pronunciation. All vowels and several consonants in written English have more than one sound, so the current alphabet doesn't cater for all the sounds. Learners can experience ambiguity and incorrect interpretation.
There are many silent and unnecessary letters in written English, which are not in spoken English. It also has irregular grammar rules for commonly used words, especially irregular verbs. For most rules, there are many exceptions that have to be learned by heart.
