#2: “Languaj” instead of “Language”

Who proposed the change:
Christopher Upward/Cut Spelling

Why the change:
Cut Spelling is one of the more recent attempts to bring greater regularity to English spelling. It differs somewhat from the proposals of many previous spelling reform movements in that it is primarily concerned with removing unnecessary letters (letrs?).

Cut Spelling is the brainchild of Christopher Upward, who noted in a handbook published by the Simplified Spelling Society in 1996 that “Al languajs chanje in th corse of time.”
