Zaxor Von Skyler : Your accent went from Canadian to asian to irish!


Hailee Rödberg : why do i like this kind of humor omg

Lox World : So phonetically consistent English is someone who grew up in Canada but migrated to Ireland at the age of 11 and only held onto some of their Canadian accent, mostly adopting an Irish accent. Phonetically consistent English is that person, 8 shots deep trying to convince a mate that they're sober.

Anhedonia ** : The ending sounded like some evil german incantations

Do;jk sesdfjibjs figduhv bfd bj dgsiub ndfunijfol : oh that’s how you speak french

This Yellow Face : I can see this happen, like *an alternate universe* where English is phonetically consistent and they watch a video about "What if English Were Phonetically Inconsistent?"

Teurastaja : As a non native speaker I must say that the hardest thing about English is the way words are pronounced when compared to how they are written.

Erica Silva : This reminds me of that video a while ago with that guy and the gummy rat

Dr. Phil : So it's like that guy with the gummy rat. I forget his channel name.

Pendosa Sinner : In my opinion, phonetical letters are still better than the current English spelling system. There are two ways to make English phonetical, either read as how the words are spelled currently (like in this video), or write as how the words are pronounced currently (which will vary depends on the region). The problem is if we reform the English spelling now, that means a lot of documents, which are still being used, will have to be rewritten, which will cost a lot of money. Also, the people, who have already learned the language, will also need to relearn it. It is still possible though, looking at Turkey or China or even my country, Indonesia.

TheBeaTle : What if English were phonetically consistent? Well, us English learners wouldn't have such stressing lives.

Dr Ankit Panigrahi India : The only language which is phonetically consistent is Sanskrit and its derivatives. All pronunciation guidelines are literally placed within the word. There's a reason why you have disagreement regarding the pronunciation of the word "GIF' .
