the letter Q

Post by quadratic » May 11th, 2011, 5:33 pm

Should we as an english speaking society, over many years get rid of the letter "Q"? It is ineffecient and not an independent letter. I mean "QU" can easily be replaced by "KW". Try it.... "Queen" would be "Kween". Its easier, less letters and more keyboard space.

I would personally like it better without it (and scrabble would be easier)

If Q was eliminated, what would the "Q.E.D." decorating the end of proofs become? :shock:

According to kwadratic, it would be Kw. E. D.

We would probably have to use the Russian version, "ч.т.д."
