Excerpt from John Hart's Pronunciation of English
Hart's Orthographic has been very little used by recent writers on the history of English sounds, and where it is mentioned, it is generally with a sneer. This is probably due to the depreciatory remarks made by Gill and Ellis. Of the former's criticism I shall have occasion to speak later; here I shall only remark that Gill, not withstanding his criticism, applies to Hart's book or system of transcription the expression bene facta.
