These are the thoughts that have occupied my mind when sleep is far away. The thoughts of a late night thinker. The thoughts that occupy my mind as I wait for sleep to come. I spend a lot of time waiting for sleep and thinking about many things. My mind ranges a variety of topics, needing something to help the time to pass. Sometimes they help to attract sleep, sometimes not. At least sitting at the computer typing fills the darkest, mid-night hours and keeps my mind from worry.
Against Phonetic Spelling
Many people have proposed that words be spelt phonetically, that is, how they sound. Mostly phonetic spelling is suggested because, it is claimed, it would be easier to read and would take away some of the odd spellings of English words. This, it is again claimed, would make it easier for children to learn to spell.
