Below is an excerpt of an article from Our Language - A Journal of Spelling Reform and was written by author Augustin Knoflach, about his book:
Though heartily in favor of eni reform that wil remove the most glaring inconsistencies in English spelling, I hav not been able to stop here, for it was and iz my intention to prepare easy methods by which foreigners may be introduced, in a few weeks, to a fair speaking knowledge of every-day English, and for this purpose I needed an absolutely phonetic sistem of spelling. I also wished that my sistem, besides serving for the instruction of foreigners, should in time find favor in the eyes of natives. For these reasons. I devised Sound-English, and published it in March, 1890. It was, however, soon aparent that some of its leading features would prevent its ever becoming popular, and I hav now modified or dispenst with these. Az revised the sistem forms the text of a "Sound-English Primer," just published, by means of which the child iz taught all the sounds of the English language in an easy and rational manner, and in a few weeks iz able to read litl stories speld in Sound-English. He iz then shown the same stories in the prezent orthography, with which hiz eyes become familiar in a surprisingly short time; after which he iz splendidli equipped for taking up eni ordinary First Reader and for taking the idiosyncrasies of prezent spelling at their true value. This haz been proved by a test made last summer with a boy six years old, using part of my primer in manuscript.
In Sound-English I giv every vowel sign its Latin sound. The length of a vowel iz indicated by doubling it, az miil (meal), paam (palm). For the u in sun I use the letter o, which often haz this value even in the prezent spelling, az in son, done, love, etc., and for the a in wasp I use q (wqsp), az there iz no longer eni use for this character, its prezent value being expressed by kw. The reasons that led me to prefer q to a vowel sign bearing a diacritical mark, such az Ã´, were that diacritic marks are not found in all printing offices, or not in sufficient quantities, and that type-writers az a rule are not provided with letters bearing such marks. I retain the digraphs sh, zh, th, dh, ch, and ng. My sistem also indicates accent. Hwen the accent does not lie on the long silabl it iz marked by doubling a consonant, az biginn (begin). Hwenever the accent lies on the first silabl, I leave it unmarked, az in histori, unless it iz already indicated by a long (doubled) vowel, az in aarteri (artery), or unless another silabl contains a double vowel, in which case the consonant of the first silabl must be doubled to indicate the accent, az in libbereet (liberate).
The opening sentens in Macaulay's "History of England" iz now in Sound-English:
ai perpos tu rait dhi histori qv inggland frqm dhi aksesshon qv king jeemz dhi sekond daun tu e taim hwich iz widhinn dhi memori qv men stil living.
It will be observed that Sound-English iz devoid of capitals, but this iz not an essential feature; let those use them who desire to do so.
