The only sense I could make out of the ur in turday was a non-rhotic representation of some vowel I couldn't even begin to think how to represent. The eh in behd was my attempt that I probably shouldn't have begun to think how to represent for some other non-rhotic vowel.
Yep, I am so totally convinced. Let's throw the IPA and those annoying linguists off the boards and perhaps off the planet. We can just use English spelling to represent all the sounds of all languages. Besides, in a few years everybody will be speaking English anyway. And that with a non-UK, non-US accent._________________________
