Consitant Spelling and word construction

The one thing I was trying to go for in the spelling reform
idea, is to make things consistant at the get go, and not later
when people are maybe using your conlang.

I do like languages like Hebrew/Arabic, with the bases of a
consonant grouping, you can tell the concept of the word.

ISLM was the example I gave, or sort of gave..

You add vowels to things, maybe an prefix or suffix and you get
a word that is related to the others, so you can maintain
subject of the word..

Also spelling, since as some have said before. English is easy
to learn to speak, but hardest to learn how to spell..

I before E except after C unless .. what ever..

Brief or BREEF.
Light or LITE or LEIT
Laugh or Lahf or Laef (some do say it with a AE not a Ah sound.
