    i totally agree, i am in the process of teaching my 3 and 4 year old the letters and the sounds they make, and it is not an easy task when you consider how confusing our alphabet is.

    *like "ph" why can't we just use an "f"?

    * and the different sounds our vowels make

    *and why does "g" have two sounds, why can't we use a "j" for giraffe?

    * and why couldn't we come up with different names for things

    i.e.: sea and see or high and hi

    * and why are some words spelled with a "ck" wasn't "c" or "k" good enough?

    *OH ...and what the heck is up with Xylophone?????

    The alphabet wasn't created specifically for the English language.

    0.5 = half. You wouldn't say "half a years ago" would you? Similarly anything more than one is plural so needs an "s". One and a half years ago

    "ooont" just doesn't have the impact of kuuuuuunt.

  • You'd need to replace it with something for the ch sound.

    Yes and also C cup bra size would just be referring to K cup or S cup which wouldn't make sense because D cup, E ( DD cup), F( DDD cup ), G cup, H cup and I cup is larger than C cup.

    Also a C in report cards would be referred to as K or S which doesn't make sense because a D and F is worse than a C.

    Yes bekause if we didn't have the letter c, our words would look like German.

    Yes. If anything we should get rid of "x"
