BP Jonsson a while ago proposed a somewhat similar scheme, at > least wrt the abbreviations. Didn't mean to be so blunt, sorry.... you know Tagalog has two standard abbreviations: <ng> and <mga> for /nang/ and /manga/, postpositions which mark genitive and plural respectively. And of course there's the famous ampersand, but it's not used in formal writing; it's much more colloquial. > It's not a practical scheme in the political sense of having to win > people's acceptance: for that, RI is much better. But in every other > respect I think it is as practical as can be. I honestly don't see Americans giving up the status quo, considering our tendency to resist reform of any kind.
