Discussion: Spelling reforms

 

Finally: which rimes with "enough"
Though, through, plough, cough, hough, or tough? 
Hiccough has the sound of "cup."
My advice is to give up!
 
Did you know that there are 645120 ways to spell Muammar al-Gaddafi? OK, this one is foreign, but English quite ambiguous in terms of spelling, too. A spelling reform sounds like a good way out. Is it?
There will be a presentation about the attempts made, a discussion of pluses, minuses, and consequences of spelling reforms, and a game.

Lies

Truth is beautiful, without doubt; but so are lies.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

This time, we are going to talk about lies. Why is it that it exists? What are the practical and moral issues? What is lies from the point of view of the liar and what is for the one who's lied to? Finally, how can one spot the lies. We shall also see a video about detecting lies, and we shall practice.
