The Law of the Shaw

After teaching C her spelling lesson this morning, I am beginning to think Mr. Shaw was on to something.

(And funny that I had to find out what "Xlrq" means by searching for the above link. It's a small 'sphere, after all).

Where do you find all of this cool stuff?

Amy, I found an article several years ago that was discussing orthography (the alphabet and spelling rules of the English language) and it used as Shaw's "ghoti" spelling for "fish" as an example.

So, are you guys gonna be able to come tubing with us?

:D :D :D :D :D

They will come when they can my dear.

Thanks for the link. Note spelling, however, R before L, except after ... um ... yell? Of course I get called XLRQ a lot, so I almost registered it as a backup domain. Then I learned it had already been taken by a web design company (no relation).
