Yes, that has always been my policy. The English alphabet is sorely lacking in sufficient vowels to spell out the spoken language. I recently heard that Arabic has 32 consonants, so that language is more advanced than ours. I once figured out that we need 36 letters, consonants and vowels, to pronounce everything the way we speak - about triple the number of vowels and one or four or five new consonants, minus the loss of useless consonants like "c" and "x".

There are two fights Jack and I never had, because I refrained from raising the topics. First, the superiority of classic opera over classic jazz and, second, his prissy alarm over Wankh, which led him to insist that it be changed to Wannek in the VIE. Totally needless, caving in to vulgar public opinion.
