    [ALIGN=LEFT]Let's face it: English is a crazy language
    There is no egg in eggplant,no ham in hamburger
    neither apple or pine in pineapple
    And while no one knows what is in a hotdog, you can be pretty sure it isn't canine
    English muffins were not invented in England or French fries in France
    Sweetmeats are candies, while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat
    We take English for granted
    But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square, and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea or is it a pig
    And why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce, and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese
    So, one moose, 2 meese? Is cheese the plural of choose? One mouse, 2 mice. One louse, 2 lice
    One house, 2 hice ? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Why do people recite at a play, and play at a recital? Ship by truck or car and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and drive on parkways? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? How can the weather be hot as Hell one day and cold as Hell another? When a house burns up, it burns down
    You fill in a form by filling it out and an alarm clock goes off by going on
    You get in and out of a car, yet you get on and off a bus
    When the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible
    And why, when I wind up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it? English is a silly language ... it doesn't know if it is coming or going !

    yours mersal

    Well, everything language can be crazy in some aspects of it ..

    But speaking of the English language, the craziest thing about it is its writing and phonetic system .. now, THAT's crazy

    I mean one word can be written in 5 or more different ways, but pronounced the same way

    son .. sun
    light .. light (two meanings
    no .. know
    meet .. meat
    threw .. through
    see .. sea
    flower .. flour

    I really can't think of the complex ones, but I'll list them when I remember .. anyway, the list is endless

    PS: Also, there are words that are written the same way, but pronounced differently such as

    read .. read .. read
