I take it back—Dewey spelled that way not because he was Scottish, but because he didn't see why you shouldn't spell a word as it was pronounced. He hoped to convert the world as well; the introduction to the decimal classification contains several pages of "Simpler Speling Rules."

To all governed by reazon rather than by vizual prejudis the objection to simpler speling that 'it looks queer' will be more than offset by the arguments, both skolarly and practical, in its favor; while those who shrink from uzing simpler forms thru fear of being regarded iliterate may find curaj thru knowing that the movement is supported by the most eminent filolojic authorities, and there will be litl danjer that even the silliest of their correspondents wil bring the charj 'they don't kno how to spell', as result of their uzing simpler forms for such common and short words as ar, giv, hav, shal, wer and wil.
