If I may ask, what did you find SO interesting in there?
Looking at Skoyles' website, there are a number of things I got to
liking about him as an individual. But I found no original insight
in that chapter. What I did find is some conceptual flaws, like:
1. His ignorance of the fact that we
generally read words, not letters.
2. His implication that languages with a large number of
syllables cannot benefit from a writing system that exhibits
syllabic grouping. Hangul has much to teach us - our pride
should not impede progress.
