comment How was English orthography reformed?
Ain't gonna happen. No one cares about orthography, and what's considered the "norm" or "correct" in the language at any time is based on usage - which evolves. "How would they make their citizens...?" Dunno what to say - this is so wide of the mark. Anyway, in a century we'll all be speaking Chinese...

comment What is the US English for “soppy”?
+1 for @HotLicks's suggestions. But I challenge the premise - the US term for soppy is soppy. It happens that soppy is used less in the US than in the UK, but soppy is still a term, even if not the only term, for soppy.

comment The correct syntactic usage of “Only”
Yes, they are all correct, and have different meanings. The classic example of this in my upbringing was the sentence "I didn't say you stole her money." You can put the emphasis on any one of the words, to get a different meaning.

comment A verb to describe the development of a wish
1. There is nothing particularly formal about developed here. 2. You are not clear about whether you want to stress the evolution/development from an incipient desire or its birth/coming into being from nothing.

comment A word to express meanings highly developed AND naturally evolved
How are those sentences, even with [word] replaced by the word you seek?
