The text also introduces into the public domain, if ever so slightly, the use of UFI (Uze'r Frendlee Inglish), a new notation system that is capable of carrying aspects of the vocal sounds of the speaker along with the meanings already possible when writing standard English. UFI introduces only two rules that are completely new: a dot after a vowel is pronounced as a long vowel sound (a-e-i-o-u as spoken when saying the alphabet); a slur or short-short vowel (written as an apostrophe, inside a word) is pronounced like the 'oo' in the word 'good' (in Canada). All the other basic 'roolz'
are 'natural' to readers and writers of English; these are included in the
Appendix-written in UFI. (See the preface for more; these are from there).
