Eezee

"Eezee is an auxilary language that is easy to learn and easy to use. It is based on English to leverage the large number of people with at least partial fluency in English. Eezee differs from English primarily in that the mapping of sounds to letters (orthography) is far more consistent. The goal of Eezee is to find a middle ground between a popular natural language and the elegant design of a constructed language." Or so claims the author. Eezee is in fact nothing more than a proposal for English spelling reform.


Advantages Over EnglishEdit

One of the strengths of English is its willingness to adopt words from other languages. Unfortunately, this also leads to one of its weaknesses: wildly irregular spelling. As just one quick example, consider the F sounds in "fish", "philosophy", "laugh". Eezee maps letters consistenly. Some potential areas that Eezee's regular spelling may be beneficial:

  • The time and effort to learn the language
  • Reading and writing speed and proficiency
  • Clarity in forming and remembering concepts
  • Reducing the occurance and severity of reading disorders such as dyslexia

Advantages Over Other Aux LangsEdit

There are already numberous auxiliary languages, many being quite clever in their design. However, none of this will benefit people who don't learn them. Many otherwise-wonderful aux langs have failed because they were more effort to learn than most potential speakers were willing to spend. Eezee compromises some design elegance to capitalize on the huge base of existing English speakers.

After all, a language is a set of conventions agreed to by a user community. The goal of Eezee is to grow a large community on a good set of conventions.

ExampleEdit

for ever and ever.for ever and ever.
Aamen.Amen.
