            Because, as pointed out before itt, the writing system is in practice the same as Chinese logograms where the symbol has no correlation with sounds, so you have to match a sound to a string of letters whereas in other languages that match is automatic.

            Not true. English is unusually bad as alphabetic orthographies go, but it's still clearly alphabetic in nature.

            Irrelevant, most people learning a new language don’t struggle with orthography (unless it’s Chinese or something), they struggle with grammar.
            And English grammar is piss easy.

      English is the perfect language to colonize
      when you add new foreign words they fit like a glove
      the inflection thing is what makes it most colonizable tho, you just take it and use the inflection from your native language and it makes it a million times better and more interesting (especially if you add an accent)
      and no, I am actually not memeing or trolling, it actually works

      What do you mean by 'don't actually know the meaning of'? Don't know what they meant in the languages they were loaned from? It's common for loanwords to change meaning when going from one language to another.

      It sucks that german translations are utterly horrendous most of the time. The russians and french are usually translated alright, but for roman, italian, spanish or greek literature, you pretty much have to go with english translations if you aren't fluent in the original language.

      The problem with English is that our spelling isn't consistent- we have a bunch of spellings that don't reflect how the word is pronounced. The existing system would need only minor modifications to actually be able to represent English phonology properly, primarily proper spellings for the FOOT vowel and the voiced dental fricative.

      It doesn’t though, why are anglx trannies so deluded? Any word with the English R (urrrr urrrr) automatically sounds ugly. Also, no vowel harmony whatsoever in that phrase and one word has two syllables while the other has one.

    things like th(coiced and unvoiced), ph, and so on, are fairly regular and need no changing. changing vowel orthographies like oo in foot is not a simple upgrade because you lose the history of the language built into the spelling. stress placement is the major thing that trips people up, and because we have lax vowels, people often dont evem now what you are saying if they are expecting the stress elsewhere. compare economic and economy.. if you start spelling words like this phonetically they will look totally sifferent, when they shouldnt. some words can be stressed in multiple ways also, so if we use an accent system where does it go. finally, the spelling system does in fact have a finite number of irregularities, and i as a fully grown english speaker will never, ever, make a pronunciation error, whether its a word ive seen before or not.

      >changing vowel orthographies like oo in foot is not a simple upgrade because you lose the history of the language built into the spelling
      What about only changing the spellings that don't accurately indicate the pronunciation of those words? So <oo> for /u/ is fine even if it doesn't exist in any other language, because it's consistent, but spellings like "one" and "women" are bad because how you'd expect them to be pronounced by English spelling norms isn't how they're pronounced.
      >compare economic and economy.. if you start spelling words like this phonetically they will look totally sifferent, when they shouldnt.
      Even if you were reforming English spelling from the ground up, I think it makes sense to write the underlying form of reduced vowels. The Communists reformed Russian spelling and they still kept that aspect.
      >and i as a fully grown english speaker will never, ever, make a pronunciation error, whether its a word ive seen before or not.
      I doubt that, spelling pronunciations aren't rare.
