My biggest pet peeve is when someone spells though as tho.
Also that one in particular would just be the word’s phonetic spelling. Compared to other languages, english has never cleaned up its spelling, phonetics, etc. Its a language of pure cruft and I support ppl shortening it.
It would be a disaster to clean up the spelling or phonetics, it’s something really hard that will most probably end up making everything worse, I think it’s better to make society change the language alone.
You should try reading Irish. It’s so much worse.
oh man I remember how I felt after I found out aghaidh was pronounced like “ai”.
that being said tho (sorry, couldn’t resist ;) irish phonology is wayy more regular than English it’s just a removed to learn coming from English letters because it’s hard not to think of them as standing in for another sound.
