La "i griega" se llamar "ye" La i griega será ye, la b será be (y no be alta o be larga); la ch y la ll dejan de ser letras del alfabeto; se elimina la tilde en solo y los demostrativos (este, esta...) y en la o entre números (5 o 6) y quorum será cuórum, mientras que Qatar será Catar. La nueva edición de la Ortografía de la Real Academia Española, que se publicará antes de Navidad, trata de ser, como dice su coordinador, Salvador Gutiérrez Ordóñez, "razonada y exhaustiva pero simple y legible". Y sobre todo "coherente" con los usos de los hablantes y las reglas gramaticales. Con todo, al director del Departamento de Español al Día de la RAE no se le escapa que los cambios ortográficos provocan siempre resistencias entre algunos hablantes. La i griega será ye.
