"So, a full third of the time, words in Truespel will look screwed up."


Truespel is a phonetic system.  One spelling per sound.  Other phonetic systems are far more screwed up and look a lot less English friendly with special symbols that are hard to type and spreadsheet unfriendly.  At a conference I asked 9 teachers to spell "ah" "uh" and "awe" in a phonetic system as I spoke the words.  None could do it.  Phonetics is thwarted by the spelling system academia uses.  It's own graphemes. http://bit.ly/2woHiXf


Also children need a notation (truespel) to write phonetically as they learn to read.  http://bit.ly/2uzVs8t


The IPA says that phonetics is a "practical" science.  Created in 1888 it's journal was printed in French until 1970 when they made a practical change to English.  Now it's time for a practical change in phoneme spellings as well.
