BREAKING NEWS

The letter R was arrested today after an investigation determined it was, in fact, a kanji impersonating a Latin letter.

This leaves the standard English alphabet with 25 letters for the remainder of 2017. On January 1, 2018, the Council of Vowels, led by archvowel E, will convene to appoint a new letter to take R's seat.

    I must contemplate if it's so that the council intend to allow Þ back into the alphabet.

    In honesty I must say I would find such a move difficult to get. I think Ah has dutifully done its intended functions as a symbol of the English language quite a long time now. It would be odd--is odd now, even--to become used to adjusting one's speech to exclude it. Alas, we must acquiesce to the council's lawmakings. It is a thing beyond the power of folks like you and I to affect.

    If we must add a new symbol in place of Ah, my choice would not be Þ (whose full name I must point out, contains the symbol excluded), but instead Ƨ. As a young--by the makeup of the council--symbol, I think Ƨ would add to the council a youthful spunk, and on top of that, he's not simply young, being a symbol-left-over from the days of the Zhuang alphabet.

    But as I said, the laws of the alphabetical council exist beyond the ken of simple folk like all of us. I do contemplate how we shall spell the name of this mighty nation now, though. I suppose someone will have to ask the mini-queen.

    i have no fucking clue how phonics affect the council bylaws. Mandating that a specific sound be abandoned just cos of one little felony seems like a difficult path to take. Like, since hʊktɑnˈfɑnɪks invaded and set up checkpoints at most of the sibilants, the Vowels lost a lot of influence. People might just neglect a mandate of actual phonic change, which would make the Council come off as pompous bogus shits, which they've gotten enough of back in the 30s with the cot-caught debacle.
