I don't understand why english orthography hasn't been updated to reflect changes in pronunciation before doing so became unfeasible due to it becoming the worlds lingua franca

nah it's useless anyway
they are basically hieroglyphics
if you change some word like nation to reflect the pronunciation english would be even less fit to be the lingua franca considering how many languages spell that word nation too

how would it be useless not to have a situation where there's basically no relation between how words are written and how they are spoken

>if you change some word like nation to reflect the pronunciation english would be even less fit to be the lingua franca considering how many languages spell that word nation too


are you implying english suitability as a franca lingua stems from the fact that it has a lot of latin derived words…

why, there is a relationship between how the words are written and pronounced filtered through however many sound shifts occured in english in the modern era
and the reason why english is so suitable as a world language is because it is so similar to the other european languages, like if you speak german there isn't really anything in english you shouldn't know of besides that they use the latin words way more often and that the grammar is way simpler, and if you speak french you basically just have to learn all the aspects of the language the normans were too lazy for. if it wasnt for that then latin would probably still be the world language which would probably be a good thing since there are no native speakers and thus no vernacular speech you have to keep track of

what does that even mean, english pronunciation is completely arbitrary and retarded

and english is the worlds language solely due to US political and cultural hegemony and certainly not because its suitable or inherently more easier to learn

nobodys going to learn english if they had a script like jap
and i dont think anyone gives a shit about how english is pronounced either considering the accents i have heard before

how does having a consistent orthography equal having a logographic writing system in your mind
you do realize english is an outlier and that orthographies of most languages are phonemic
