the letter “Q” is nearly always followed by the letter “U” (statistically speaking that is all the goddamn time), it makes more sense to just drop the u and teach our children to pronounce the letter q like “kwuh.”
quality will now be qality.
quiet will now be qiet.
seriously, why use two letters when it makes more sense to use one?
if you’re dumb and have trouble seeing the obvious superiority of this system, take a qick look at the wikipedia page on List of English words containing Q not followed by U. See? Those words are almost all worthless, unless you’re trying to transliterate arabic (something i know all of you do every fucking day). If you are transliterating arabic you should really just be using a k instead of qu or just q. qabob? no, it’s kabob, duh.
on a related note, these are my four favorite highest scoring scrabble words. Yes, in my mind these things are directly related but you know what? fuck it, i’m not even going to explain why.
