    English preffered Euro wide language

    The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has
    been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for European
    communications, 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
    five-year phased plan for what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for
    short). In the first year, "s" will be used instead of the soft "c".
    Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this news with joy. Also, the
    hard "c" will be replaced with "k". Not only will this klear up
    konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less letter.
    There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year, when the
    troublesome "ph" will be replaced by "f". This will make words like
    "fotograf" 20 per sent shorter.
    In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be
    expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are
    possible. Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters,
    which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil
    agre that the horible mes of silent "e"s in the languag is
    disgrasful, and they would go.
    By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing
    "th" by z" and "w" by " v".
    During ze fifz year, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords
    kontaining "ou", and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer
    kombinations of leters.
    After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be
    no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand
    ech ozer.
    Ze drem vil finali kum tru.
