Writing and transcription are functionally very different. Writing is for readers who have little need for minute phonetic information because they know the language that is written and, therefore, do not depend on such information for identifying meaningful units in the text. Rather, they are better served by a system that ﬁlters out unnecessary phonetic information and even omits phonological information for the sake of morphology and grammar. It is in this sense that ‘a writing system is a grammar – a description of a language’ (Scholes and Willis 1991: 230).

In many cases this is undeniable. An ever increasing part of the vocabulary of written languages come into existence in writing. They can be given a phonetic interpretation, which, however, is decidedly secondary. What is more, thanks to the impact of literacy schooling, it is likely that most educated people’s conception of language should be inﬂuenced by writing.
