Brexit Fallout: Oxford Dictionaries To Drop The Vowels ‘E’ And ‘U’

imageLONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – The massive fallout from the U.K.’s Brexit vote to leave the European Union (EU) continues unabated.  Financial stocks have fallen. Racial tensions escalate. European unity is in peril.

Now, even the English language must change.

Today, Oxford University Press announced that it will soon release an updated edition of its English Dictionaries that will basically eliminate the vowels ‘E’ and ‘U,’ leaving only three: ‘A,’ ‘I’ and ‘O.’

“Since the U.K. decided to leave the EU, we don’t see any further need for those two vowels,” an Oxford Press announcement said. image

The Adobo Chronicles learned from reliable sources that the dropped vowels in each word entry in the dictionaries will be automatically replaced with the asterisk (*).

Henceforth, our datelines emanating from the United Kingdom will appear as ” *nit*d Kingdom.”
