  1. With a language with clear and logic spelling this is no problem.
    One sound = one letter, no double consonants if not needed.
    A sound F and not PH (English)
    A sound F and not V (German)
    but
    Finnlando not Finland (the land that ends)
    Pollando not Poland (the land of river Po)

  2. What really gets to me is when I see “would of done that” or “this is are house”.
