Kleer English Dictionary: a Respelling of English by Robin L. Randall

For over 200 years scholars have been talking about the possibility of changing the spelling of English so that it would be easier to learn and easier to remember. Using Ogden's Basic English 5000 words as a basis, this dictionary attempts to provide a phonetic alphabet based primarily on that of James Pitman's and a few simple rules to arrive at an idealized re-spelling of the most common English words. Definitions are not given since the focus is on the spelling and not the meanings of the words which can be found in any common English dictionary. Although this dictionary is limited to Ogden's Basic English vocabulary, the re-spelling of Kleer English, as I call it, can easily be extended to the entire English Language vocabulary.
