Subject: Re: whut the hale
I could have saved a lot of trouble if I had clarified my original
posting about "whut." I should have asked everyone if they considered
the VOWEL to be eye-dialect, setting aside the h-less issue. But I think
Natalie's right, that keeping much of standard spelling occurs for
aesthetic and practical reasons.
