    Default English - The Official Language in Europe (5-year phased plan)

    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.

    Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German ze vey ve vunted in ze forst
    plas.
