Re: A new symbol and name for eth
- I basically prefer using letters rather than numbers...
although ARABIZY (transcription of arabic used by native speakers on the web) shows that it can be done and it can be very useful. So why not English I guess? It's all a matter of getting used to new symbols...I guess.
Steve, <breathe> has a voiced /D/ in standard English as far as I know, my dictionary (daniel jones) only has /D/... I know that sometimes American English has /T/ instead of /D/, well, at least in <with> which has /D/ in BBC English.
I'm not familar with that old name of eth... have to check it out.
nicky (still in favour of spelling reform!)
