Ernest Vincent Wright

If youth, throughout all history, had had a champion to stand up for it; to show a doubting world that a child can think; and, possibly, do it practically; you wouldn’t constantly run across folks today who claim that “a child don’t know anything.”A child’s brain starts functioning at birth; and has, amongst its many infant convolutions, thousands of dormant atoms, into which God has put a mystic possibility for noticing an adult’s act, and figuring out its purport.




This is the first paragraph of the novel GADSBY by Ernest Vincent Wright, written in the late 1930's which contains some 50,000 words but not the letter E.

'a child don't know anything!'

that's chEEting don't you know!
thErE's an E in doEsn't, rEplacing it by 'don't' makEs for incorrEct grammar.

Well, he did put it in Quotation marks, thus quoting the folks who use this term and I think it is perfectly permissable, you wouldn't complain if someone would call a biography of Jonathan Ross:
"Bweakfast with Twuffaut"
as long as the stuff is in quotations.
I would aggree with you if the whole book was in quotation marks though...

Also, didn't the famous Dutch author Willem van Drop'em use the same technique?
In his book:
"Ik lees niet motorfietsen, hou ik van de smaak niet"
which allegedly does not contain the letter "Y" he uses the word "Hepsilon" instead of Ypsilon to get around the problem, also put in Quotationmarks...
