You see, if "Y" stands for "TH" then we've been doing things wrong.
It's "Thippee ti-thi-tho get along little dogies" and "Thee-HAH!" and "Thoung ladth, thou're in big trouble!" and "Whth, mommth dearest?" and "Billth the Kid" and "John Wathne" and "The Battle of Thpres" and "Night and thay, thou are the one" and so on. I don't think this will cause manth problems. Ads can still sath things like "Thou'll be thounger looking bth using Oil of Olath". Thes, I think we should honor our ancestral heritage and again use "TH" where ever a "Y" now appears.
Hmmm...there's the problem of I and J, and W can be replaced...J'll have to do some more thjnkjng on thjs. VVe should reallth keep our language true to jt's roots.
