As everyone reading this is undoubtedly aware, English is a highly non-phonetic language. Anywhere between 40-60% of all words in English are not spelled phonetically, including “phonetic” itself. So determined was he to change this, George Bernard Shaw would not give up even in death. Instead, he proposed a contest in his will to make a 100% phonetic alphabet for the English language. The contest was held, the alphabet was created, and his play Androcles and the Lion was converted to the new alphabet. Instead of catching on and spreading like wildfire, it sadly died a quiet death... until now. In this work you’ll find many examples of Poe’s genius. Most people know him only as the father of modern horror, not realising that he also wrote love poetry, science fiction, science fact, plays, reviews, philosophical treatises, and even a documentary on how he wrote The Raven. Now, for the first time ever, you can enjoy Edgar Allan Poe as you’ve never seen him... More > before... in 100% phonetic English.< Less
