Except that all of those Ћ are supposed to be the proposed "the" symbol.

Aah, so where @ and & don't have specific pronunciations of their own since they're symbols rather than letters, Ћ is actually a Serbian Cyrillic letter representing a sound similar to the ch sound in "chew." So "Ћ man threw Ћ ball at Ћ face of Ћ llama" would actually sound more like "Ch man threw ch ball at ch face of ch llama."

I liked this, but then again, I am strange and weird. I would use it, but I can't figure out how to type it.

@ MeGrendel: Now now now. I happen to like Michael Moore a lot. But let's not go there; I wanna keep this a fun thread.

Actually, I was thinking one of you conservatives was going to say:

HERE's the perfect Liberal F*cktard symbol: =^.^=

LOL!

Squrlz4Sale-"Ollie, I think you need a "Liberal F*cktard" symbol. That would save you 300 keystrokes a day, at least"

Yeah, imagine if he had this key on his puter...

I like how several of you have risen to Gerry's "F*ck Off And Die" symbol challenge. Very creative bunch you are!

On a related note: Ollie, I think you need a "Liberal F*cktard" symbol. That would save you 300 keystrokes a day, at least. =^.^=

I've always pronounced 'the' as more of a.."thuh"
"
When I hear Thee I think of "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?" (Hot as f**k)

God how I hated how he was saying 'the'... anyone else think it should sound more like the e in 'her' instead of like the e in 'tree'?

What's the ASCII code for that symbol? Is this guy going to volunteer to update every font in existence? Just curious.

Well, & is a squishing together of the Latin word "et", which means "and". @ is a squishing together of the Latin word "ad", meaning "at" or "to." We already had a faster way of writing "the," anyway: "Ye." The 'Y' was originally a symbol referred to as a "thorn" representing a hard "th" sound, but printers didn't have a thorn on hand and so used a 'Y' since it looked closest. We migrated away from 'Y' to "th" by the late 19th century.

In other words, saying "let's sit down and decide how people are going to write" isn't how language works. Unless it's Korean. Or French to an extent. Or modern Latin. Or possibly some other languages I'm unfamiliar with. But that's definitely not how English works.

drawman61-"And why is abbreviation such a long word?"

For the same reason the fear of long words is called 'hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia' and the world 'Lisp' has an 's' in it.

"Why do you talk funny?"

"I have a Lith".

"A Lith?"

"No! A lith!?!?! DAMMIT!"

I would've said dumb once but now that typing/texting is everywhere maybe it should have it's own key...as well as &.

And why is abbreviation such a long word?

Except "and" is used in every other language in the world, even those that don't use prepositions have words for "or" and "and". For ex we don't have the concept "the" in finnish at all(we also don't have "he" or "she" separately just one word for both sexes but that's another matter..). All the "of", "as" "in" etc are attached to end of words..

Just a funny fact, the symbol "&" is commonly pronounced as "and" instead of our own word for it "ja".. So growing up i learned that the symbol was named "and-symbol" :)
