Here's a poem I wrote at school, some sixty plus years ago, using different spellings for the same sound (rhyme)
I find it really quite absurd
That when an Englishman is heard
To say an ordinary word
Its spelling cannot be inferred.
For he follows not the common herd
With gutteral, brogue or vowel, well stirred
His speech, if sober, is not slurred
But rings out clearly, as a bird.
Oh! Pity the foreigner, gaping dumbly,
When he first encounters the name of Cholmondeley.
(For the benefit of foreigners, Cholmondeley is pronounced as "Chum lee".)
Very witty! That reminds of the official English accent as per BBC radio and TV. I read somewhere that the main objection to to the regional TV series Coronation Street back in the 60s was the 'objectionable' accent. As it turned out, people loved the series.
