Euro-English

Mae'r Saesneg bellach wedi ei dewis yn hytrach na'r Almaenmeg fel prif iaith yr Undeb Ewropeaidd. Yn ogystal a hynny mae'r Undeb Ewropeaidd wedi gosod canllawiau i sillafu'r Saesneg yn fwy phonetig. Wele yr erthygl isod! Anhygoel, dwi'n meddwl ei fod yn syniad reit dda. Hynny yw y newid sillafu nid y ffaith fod y Saesbneg yn brif iaith Ewrop.

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European nation rather than German which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English"

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of the "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with the "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

I was looking for blogs about tai chi and came across yours. I have whats referred to as a hard style Karate School and this is something we've been contemplating adding to it. Great blog you have and I've enjoyed reading the posts on it.
