Whunce I readed ee cummmings and the journals of Lewis and Clark, I reelized that itz "Oh, Kay!" to be veddy flexibull in whunz ritin' style. Rools are mostly bull. Except in Germany. There it is mandatory that one must adhere to the strict rules of the current official version of the language and its grammar. You could gett shot if you deviate. Butt, the rules do allow a little flexibility - you can make up your own compound words and make them as long and with as many elements as you want. No upper bound. The Germans argued and CONtemplated for a long time before deciding to gradually move from the 'capital beta' for the 'ss' sound to jussed using two lowercase esses "ss" instead. This took them many decades and they are still in the process of that one minor 'modernization'. The German national motto (or credo, if one prefers that) is Alles in Ordnung. Butt Engrish, hail, that whacky langwitch bein' all overs DaPlace. Engrish is like an acid trip, yo.
