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? ;-) ;-)
