Should the English language start using character accents like the rest of Europe does?

no, but add ashe, schwa and diphtongs to your spelling since you use these things all the time but write them down as random vowels for no reason

>>153389893
no thanks, im bad enough at reading in the first place

You're acute accent

If would simplify reading, not the opposite

No, because it would end up looking like Vietnamese. Just throw in like 5 extra letters instead.

Okay, and what if we all just decided not to use accents like Israelis do when writing Hebrew?

people don't realize how much of an advantage european languages have for maintaining autistic spelling ect
it doesnt matter for natives and you can still easily read text from 500+ years ago and maintain etymology meanings

japanese and korean is nearly unreadable for many even 80 years ago

I read somewhere that Japanese people can't understand Hirohito's surrender speech even though it was only 70 years ago. Is that true?
