why not just use the right vowels in the first place instead of using the wrong one and then drawing abstract pictures above it to make it sound like another one?

What would happen to the Metl?

1. says one speaking a language where a letter always has the same sound
2. abstract pictures, as opposed to letters which are instead a faithful representation of a real object (if anyone *actually* knows what a "real" "object" is in the first place)...

And there I was thinking that "umlaut" was an international mid-90's smash hit for Hanson.

Well I am currently on a German keyboard trying to avoid typing in anything with a z or y because I keep typing the wrong ones. Silly suppliers should have had my laptop to me by now. But at least it means I can do umlauts to my hearts content! and even a :D

Errr... you know that there's such thing as a keyboard layout that you can set in your operating system?

Vincent

Do you know that there's a thing like keys?

Oerdin

Do tell.

Yes, I know, but then having all the keys in different places would be even more confusing...although perhaps because I never look at the keyboard when I type it might not cause a problem - but I did manage to lock myself out of my account earlier on because I was typing a bloody z and not a y :mad:

I don't believe in typing letters with any sort of dot or squiggly mark over or under them. Sorry.

The four uses of lower-case "i" challenge your stance.

Yeah but I don't need a fancy keyboard or a stupid 3-4 character code to make them, so they don't count. :coolgrin:
