The Strange English language!
Have you ever wondered why foreigners1 have trouble with the English language?
Let's face it:
If writers write, how come fingers don't fing. If the plural2 of tooth is teeth, shouldn't the plural of phone booth3 be phone beeth. If the teacher taught, why didn't the preacher4 praught.
1 foreigner - иностранец
2 plural - множественное число
3 phone booth - телефонная будка
4 preacher - проповедник
- Honey! Be careful! There was a biton the news just no, some lunatic is driving the wrong way down the motor way!
- It's worse than that! There are hundreds of them!
