NEWS RELEASE                                                               
To all departments.                                                        

English in the European Economic Community (EEC)
     European officials have often pointed out that English spelling       
     is unnecessarily difficult - for example, cough, plough, rough,       
     through and thorough. What is clearly needed is a phased              
     programme of changes to iron out these anomalies. The programme       
     would, of course, be administered by a committee staff at top         
     level by participating nations.                                       
     In the first year, for example, the committee would suggest using     
     's' instead of the soft 'c'. Sertainly, sivil servants in all         
     sities would resieve this news with joy. Then the hard 'c' could      
     be replaced by 'k' sinse both letters are pronounsed alike. Not       
     only would this klear up konfusion in the minds of klerikal           
     workers, but typewriters kould be made with one less letter.          
     There would be growing enthusiasm when in the sekond year, it         
     kould be announsed that the troublesome 'ph' would henseforth be      
     written 'f'. This would make words like 'fotograf' twenty per         
     sent shorter in print.                                                
     In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be       
     expekted to reash the stage where more komplikated shanges are        
     possible. Governments would enkourage the removal of double           
     letters which have always been a deterent to akurate speling.         
     We would al agre that the horible mes of silent 'e's in the           
     languag is disgrasful. Therefor we kould drop thes and kontinu to     
     read and writ as though nothing had hapend. By this tim it would      
     be four years sins the skem began and peopl would be reseptive to     
     steps sutsh as replasing 'th' by 'z'. Perhaps zen ze funktion of      
     'w' kould be taken on by 'v', vitsh is, after al, half a 'w'.         
     Shortly after zis, ze unesesary 'o kould be dropd from words          
     kontaining 'ou'. Similar arguments vud of kors be aplid to ozer       
     kombinations of leters.                                               
     Kontinuing zis proses yer after yer, ve vud eventuli hav a reli       
     sensibl riten styl. After tventi yers zer vud be no mor trubls,       
     difikultis and evrivun vud fin it ezi tu understand ech ozer. Ze      
     drems of ze Guvermnt vud finali hav kum tru.
