[YAK] Metric Alphabet

In response to DrDule’s discovery of the awkward conversion of
common cliches into metrics, there was a move a while back, to
distill the alphabet down to 10 letters. For instance, A, E, I,
O, and U, become one letter…A. The letters C, G, K, and Q
become C. The letters F, PH, V, and W become F, and so on down to
a total of ten letters. It makes spelling much simpler. For
instance, “wig” becomes “Fac” and “give” becomes “caf.” As
economical and logical as it may seem, I don’t think the idea got
very far. Alan
