Za tú našu jazykovú reformu

Na stránkach vybrali.sme.sk som narazil na zaujímavý link s návrhom zrušiť písmeno Y v slovenskej abecede. Za podarený vtip som to považoval len do chvíle, keď som si uvedomil, že je to myslené vážne. Samozrejme som si nemohol odpustiť stručný komentár, ktorý odštartoval zaujímavú debatu s človekom menom Ipsilon (vcelku, zdá sa, inteligentným, ale zrejme v detstve utrpivším nejakú gramatickú traumu), ktorú by som vám týmto rád dal do pozornosti. Len ma mrzí, že miestami som už strácal zmysel pre humor.

Že podobné pochybné snahy nemátajú len niektoré slovenské hlavy si pozrite napr. tu. Srandu si z toho robil už Mark Twain a mojou obľúbenou je táto paródia Euro-English:
Euro-English

The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5 year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".

In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v". During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru. Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

Apdejt: Lafcadio ma dobry postreh k tomuto.
Addendum: Ďalší zásadný príspevok k téme reformy jazyka.
