Once we get more interesting characters, they will become uninteresting because of familiarity.
That said, we need pronunciation markers so people (especially non-native speakers) know which sound the vowels make.
More characters? Shoot, most people can’t spell with the characters we have.
Tru dat. ;)
Only because each written vowel has multiple possible sounds… if each sound had only 1 corresponding phonograph it would be a lot easier.
And by phonograph I mean phonogram… because drawing little pictures of phonographs instead of letters would just be silly.
Or would it?
One of the Webdings fonts probably includes a phonograph.
