By CONNIE GORDON
"English can never become an
international language until it is
written the way it is spoken
That was the comment of Dr.
Joseph E. A. Alexis, University
professor of modern languages,
concerning unnecessary complexi
ties in the written English lan
guage. Alexis has taught 15 lan
guages. Alexis said that the anti
quated form of written English
that is in use today causes
many spelling failures of stu
dents throughout their lives. He
cited as an example the word
"eight." He commented that
"there is no rhyme or reason
why the word should be spelled
in such way."
Alexis commented that most
students who are graduated from
high schools all over the country,!
are unaoie to speu correctly be
cause of the out-dated hindrances
of written English. He add that in
University English courses, these

"Written English," said Alexis,
"is a remnant of the Middle Ages
that still pursues. We write a
language today that was spoken
600 years ago. In other words,
we speak a language that is not
written." Alexis added, "If we
spoke the same, language we
wrote, we could not be under
stood." Alexis said that only three

10 inclusive are spoken the way
they are written. These num-

Alexis said that English could

added that the language, even the
