Over the years I've collected words that show how difficult the English language is. Here's a sample.
through, cough, dough, plough, rough
cove, move, love
nose, dose, lose
flour, tour, your
brood, flood, good
beat, threat, great
bomb, comb, womb
I would love for someone to explain the rules of pronunciation to me. While it's great that immigrants learn our language, we certainly don't make it easy for them. Hence, the reason the children pick it up faster than the adults. They're immersed in it. They grow up with it. Yet whenever immigration is an issue--a manufactured hot button topic--the language difference is always brought up. Immigrants should be required to speak our lawless English which should also be our official language.
Well, hey, like the man says...
If English becomes the official language, will Sarah Palin have to speak in clear, complete, grammatically correct sentences that make sense?
She may learn to speak in clear, complete, grammatically correct sentences, but I doubt she'll ever make sense. :-)
oh my god, that picture rules. 1000 words indeed -- and all of them likely misspelled
