Lets look in detail how these sentences are made up . Some of the words are written as they might sound . You may not agree with the vowels or the half letters the pronounciation of which depends on where in the world you come from.

Some notes on the above. In sentence one note the accent mark which looks like a half moon . It signifies the accent is on T and not on S.
In 2 the word well is spelt vael as there is no equivalent to W . You might write it as uvell to get closer to the sound. In 3 note the r mark modifying the F in French. In 4 there is a half P . In 6 the aaet is often written with only a single ae mark on top.In 8 note the r in mark over the k modifies M the previous letter.The Sh sound here is the more chesty Shh as in Shun , different from the Sh in no. shine 5.
