Ay Revolooshonree Werk – In this uniquely amusing novel, David Herman describes the dramatic impact of an English language revolution in England, a revolution in spelling to make English accessible to millions around the world, including British and American citizens, who are often at a loss to read and write in traditional English.
The young and charismatic leader of the English language revolution, Dayvid (David), reveals his revolutionary plans to a small group of supporters and very soon it become public knowledge and screaming newspaper headlines, and very soon it threatens to divide the country and create havoc in many spheres of the British way of life including the monarchy, the press, the universities, Parliament and political life, international relations, and even marital relations, and to extend to all parts of the English-speaking world.
The country is split between supporters of the traditional English spelling and those who eagerly follow Dayvid and the new spelling system. The impact of the revolution on many areas of life and the new and simplified and easily readable forms of English spelling are very mirthful, thought provoking, and the basic conflict in English society and its eventual resolution make for a hilariously dramatic, constantly inventive literary work.
Much of the intellectual fun lies in the new spelling of words and names which will give an endless dimension of interest and delight for the reader.
