    Hello Doug,

    you have written:

    I possess an songbook from an Alsatian singer and writer,
    with both German, Alsatian (German dialect), and French
    songs. In many song texts, the /ʃ/ sound is written as
    “š”, rather than “sch”. Very convenient, indeed.

    Could be a model for the next German spelling reform ;-)
    Or would you rather propose the Germans should adopt Evellian
    spelling? ;-) ;-)

    Best wishes,
       Otto Stolz
