A Plan for the Improvement of English Spelling

by Mark Twain

For example, in Year 1 that useless letter `c' would be dropped to be replased either by `k' or `s', and likewise `x' would no longer be part of the alphabet. The only kase in which `c' would be retained would be the `ch' formation, which will be dealt with later. Year 2 might reform `w' spelling, so that "which" and "one" would take the same konsonant, wile Year 3 might well abolish `y' replasing it with `i' and Iear 4 might fiks the "g/j" anomali wonse and for all.

Jenerally, then, the improvement would kontinue iear bai iear with Iear 5 doing awai with useless double konsonants, and Iears 6-12 or so modifaiing vowlz and the rimeining voist and unvoist konsonants. Bai Iear 15 or sou, it wud fainali bi posibl tu meik ius ov thi ridandant letez `c', `y' and `x' - bai now jast a memori in the maindz ov ould doderez - tu riplais `ch', `sh', and `th' rispektivli.
