My Travel Agent in Blogland Suggested my Blog

Photo taken while standing on a bunch of real hard rocks in Nova Scotia, It was windy.


My Travel Agent in Blogland Suggested my Blog I felt robbed. So I took a trip down memory lane.

How to spell every last letter in the alphabet

Just in time for celebrating the 15 day anniversary
of "My Mule"(June 16) we posted a new spelling for
"H" it was suggested by Anonymous and I changed the
spelling.Rome was not built in a day, The OED was not
written in a day nor shall we have the letters all
spelled correctly but by God we are off to a good
start! This will also render your spell check obsolete
I reckon the software companies are going to jump
right on this idea, so be it....
lord knows they could use the money.
Thanks again Anonymous...I would also like to thank
the nice lady who answers to Nancy for her comment
and for being supportive...JW


Ok here goes all numbers have spellings, example 1 is
spelled one, 2 is spelled two and so on but letters
have no spelling which always leaves me feeling empty
if I want to mention a certain letter to a friend in
correspondence, for example:Dear Friend, I was
thinking of the L the other day...Ok L? what does that
mean? and should it not have a spelling, what has
become of our beloved English language? How many
letters can you spell? I thought so.Are we lazy
English speakers? Why don't we all write someone and
complain about needing a proper spelling for every
letter of the alphabet other wise we are going to
slowly slip into a degree of illiteracy that is just
dang stupid...................

Well, I was talking to my collaborator Roscoe and he
has prodded me with his help to come up with a
compressive guide to the proper spelling of the
english alphabet.Stay tuned...... Once we get over the
hurdle of "A" we should be able to complete and have
published within a certain amount of time.

Time pass's

American
The correct spelling of our alphabet...First draft.
By Roscoe L and Josh W

Final edit by Josh W... Roscoe L I am sure will have
something to say about this...tough!
Ok we think we have "A" figured out its spelled "hay"
except the "h" and "y" are silent.
"B" is "bee".
"C" is "seagh"
"D" is "Dee".
"E" is "see" but remember the "s" is silent.
"F" is "eaf" this may or may not make since I will
leave that to the academics.
"G" is "ji". or goua (hard)
"H" is "
aitch". Confusing? But I am firm on this one.
I was firm until Anonymous
proposed a more accurate spelling. Thanks Anonymous!
"I" is "ahyee".
"J" is "jehyea".
"K" is "cay".
"L" is "el". As in diablo.
"M" is "em".
"N" is "en".
"O" is "oh". Easy enough.
"P" is "pee".
"Q" is "kyou". A little complicated but necessary, get
out of the boat if you don't like letters.
"R" is "aar". Sounds like a pirate in a hurry.
"S" is "es". As in (Me alphabet "es" su alphabet).
"T" is "tee".
"U" is "you".
"V" is "vee".
"W" is "dubbahyou".
"X" is "eccs".
"Y" is "wyh".
"Z" is "zee".
We believe this is the first step in making the english
language easier to understand, if we truly want to
preserve our culture then we have to take steps to
insure that history is written with letters from our
alphabet and they need a spelling . Yes we understand
we are going to need a lot more rules to the spelling
of our letters so we are open to suggestions,we do not
dot all our "ahyee's" We are to busy thinking outside of
the box.Please only constructive criticism we can
not mire ourselves down with useless debates about
progress and the hows and whys. Letters can no longer
go on with out proper spellings, why half the world is
laughing at us! Especially the illiterate!

Why in the hell would anyone ever want to go to Canada? You must be French.

World Champ: Nope not French.

Commander Josh -- My head hurts. I am unable to fully understand the new spelling dynamic. I am at the ready to employ and enforce, but need a quick lie down and then will try to gain the required intellect to follow.

However, I love that shot you took while standing on the rocks.

I do so love Canada. I'm not French. However, I often wish I were. Then I could speak French well and have a better chance at convincing Isabelle Huppert to be my friend and let me stare at her.

 
At 9:52 PM , Blogger ing said...

Why doesn't Isabelle Huppert pronounce the "tee" at the end of her name? What's up with that?

I think "aitch" is just right. But "goua"? What's that (and I ask this in a very constructive yet critical tone)? And the thing with not pronouncing the "L" (el) sound in W -- is that a dialect specific to Indianans?

Constructively yours,

matt: Thanks, the subject was a gimmie,without good light and such, it could have been dull. it was not my intention to hurt yuor head, it hurts mine as well if this helps.
If you meet Isabelle Huppert, be nice but maybe do not tell her that you want to be her friend so you can stare at her, trust me on this one.

ing:She does not pronounce the T cause its a French thing, we can help her with this project.
"goua" is Roscoes, I didn't ask cause I figure he new. Here is his response from the original post, W caused quite a stir even back in the olden times...We are benefited or victimized by where we live or at least by how we learn the language. "Here in Indiana, some people “Worsh their clothes and play the pi-anee”. Others, “Wash clothes and play piano”. These examples address the language and don’t approach details of spelling the alphabet. This exploration will take time, like rebab programs".
Anyhow you have been helpful, constructive and I think I may summon the courage to ask Roscoe about "goua".

Ha! You said "pee".

i stopped by to collect your soul but after reading this post i decided that i dont really even want it


but what the fuck

after all i already have john denver

you cant be much worse

This spelling is especially helpful for all non native english speakers, hahaha.

Is non native in the dictionary?

 
At 3:42 AM , Blogger Toby said...

My name is spelled kenney with the last syllable prounounced like "see" with the "s" being ilent of course. How would ahyee spell a silent "Y"?

 
At 4:37 AM , Blogger josh williams said...

Satan: That was kind of mean spirited dont you think?

Mone: I do not think non native is in the dictionary but does apply to most of our population. The aboriginal (native Americans) had no use for the Alphabet. But I know what you mean, this may the most important document,ever. Save the American Alphabet!

toby: The silent spelling of letters is on the to do list, I am open to suggestions.

Hai!

I'd go with ing on the double you(w).

As for "f", how about 'aff' or 'eff', as in 'affect'?

And as for "z", 'zee' would be american. We, as in Indians who follow British English, pronounce it as 'zed'.

I don't think that anyone could come up with a comprehensive list of these for as G.Bernard Shaw stated with an example, fish can also be spelt as "ghoati"..('gh' from enough, 'o' from women and 'ati' from nation).

Good try though. Interesting.

Roscoe made this point in June of 05...I’ve noticed when you are confronted about this alphabet, its Roscoe’s doin’. Don’t bail out, hink about It. . .The alphabet spellings is written with the dominate hand. Therefore, the Silent H is written by the submissive. So if the author is right-hand dominate,, the left hand writes the Silent H. The reader notes the evident quality difference and assumes the muted letter. Ambidextrous scribes are ignored as anomalies of nature. Keep it SIMPLE

Nice shot!

Slime face: Why thank you those are very kind words.

Sing.

 
At 3:38 AM , Blogger josh williams said...

~d: Concert DVD's are great because you can watch the show listen and use closed caption to follow the lyrics. I have been known to do this, very interesting with the Floyd and Peter Gabriel as well. I did sing, my coworkers, asked me polietly to "stop and stop right now".

If you google "a lady got her tubes tied when she was abducted from aliens"
My Mule will be your 3rd choice. Fun fact 10/25/06

 
At 9:31 AM , Blogger Toby said...

I want to hear an English person sing the alphabet song.

...w, x, y and zed.

As for the silent "Y" spelling, how about "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"? All only mouthed with out any sound of course.

P.S. I spelled that word right on my first try.

I am glad you enjoyed the talking monkeys in human clothing. I stand by my statement - comedy gold.

 
At 7:01 PM , Blogger josh williams said...

toby: Yep, The alphabet song, one of my favorites, but I think the English mans version would be dry and lack the hip free style jazz feeling of our true American alphabet.As for your spelling, shit monkeys! That is a one in a million ability, no shit, you know you see my editing abilty, or lack of editing at all is more like it, I see so many mistakes when I read my posts but I do not correct them. I just let them sit and burn the anal retentive like the sun on a vampire.
Yes there is a dark side.

flamingo: When monkeys are not funny then I will put on my pants and shave.

STOP IT! I wanna know how to find ME if you google something weird!
OMIGOD!
"a lady got her tubes tied when she was abducted from aliens"

SO RIGHTEOUS!
*how did you find this out?

Heh heh heh!

 
At 3:06 PM , Blogger matty said...

I feel better about it all now.

And, thanks for reminding Ing that Isabelle is French. ...they speak differently than we do.

Commander Josh, as always, I stand at the ready for this project. Just send the order my way and I will get rolling on it!

~d: I looked at the stats page, I find alot of people find me looking for porn, because I copy and pasted I think it was the top 10 or 20 or more? Porn titles for a post a long time ago, goggle search picks it up since blog is google driven.I think that is how it works...

Matt: Isabelle… French, Spanish whatever if you ask a woman to be you friend because you want to stare at her, you will either be shunned, slapped or maybe given a price...As for the project, yep, as you well know very vital to keeping alive our American alphabet, do we really want to fall back on Japanese characters and have a keyboard the size of a car hood? Can you imagine the nightmare of hunt and peck when you write in characters? I suppose I need to start a non-profit organization to study, travel (in luxury) the globe and determine the best spellings for our beloved 26. I will need people who are willing to do the same, you would need to be willing to travel the globe to wherever you felt it most beneficial to clear thinking, this is a not for profit org but we all would receive salaries and of course travel expenses, spare no expense, we need comfortable clear thinkers. Damn I have to admit this scheme really has me stoked!

At a meeting today Rumsfeld told president Bust that three Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq.

President Bush turned pale and put his head on his desk and asked Rumsfeld just how many is a Brazilian ?

Hello and thanks for the opportunity to read and post on your blog.

I’ve just posted an article related to travel tips for seniors on my blog and I thought maybe you’d be interested in reading it. Here is short preview of some of the areas I covered:

- Prefer a backpack on wheels instead of a suitcase, you could pull it behind you when your back hurts or you are exhausted.
- Consider checking your bag in with the airlines, because it would become an unnecessary burden to be dragged all over the airport or the city if you are going to have a short visit.
- You could stay outside the city, in a hostel maybe, because it is cheaper, less crowded and the air is much fresher, but you have to walk or use the transport more, to get in the city or to the station.
- Most museums, some concert halls, railways, airlines, bus lines, ferry and shipping lines have a discount policy for seniors.
- Electronic devices are useful but sometimes they can give you a lot of headaches. You could help yourself with a micro-tape recorder to record your notes. It would be easier than to write and you would put them down on paper later, to share your notes with your family.
- If you bring a camera with you to keep the beautiful images alive along the time then make sure you know how to handle it or you might fail to record them not only on that camera but also in your eyes.

For more resources on travelling to Europe you are welcome to visit my blog, where you can also get acces to some excellent maps of Stockholm and maps of London, together with information on hotels and restaurants.

Best regards,

Michael R.
