Dilemma of the Spelling Reform
MetadataShow full item record
This essay was written in History of the English Language (ENGL300) with Professor Inas Mahfouz in 2017. This research paper was for an assignment where we had to write an argument with or against George Orwell’s Spelling Reform Theory, and my thesis counters most of the major points to Orwell’s theory. Orwell provides six points where he talks of how each of them could benefit the linguistic formation of the English Language, but one should think of the economic and academic crisis that could occur if the language reform was taken to action, where billions of dollars would be spent on reprinting and unnecessary deforestation.
