comment “How do we call (something) in English?”
"likely to attract an answer of something like 'I open the window and yell "Charlie"'" - OK, but cannot it be just shortened to "I call him "Charlie"?

comment History of the phrase “for Mother Russia”
"родина" actually does not have the word for "mother". It is literally, "birth-land". Motherland (as the land of the mother) has no one-word Russian equivalent.

Do u mean understand rather than read? Because evidently phonetic spelling is what the easier to read since you just read what is written. On the other hand you may have difficulty to understand the meaning if the words are pronounced and spelt the same way but mean different things.

comment Can we say that the words whose spelling is much contrary to the spelling rules get gradually expelled from English?
