Sunday Musings #81

Life’s too short to finish anythi –

 

I’ve always loved a play on words, puns and crosswords. It’s also interesting how many English words sound different although spelt the same; (rough, bough) and many sound the same with different spelling; (bough, bow).

And how about these: “tough, through, though, thought”.

So, yeah, this clever little quote really appealed to me!

      I believe the thing with English is that England was invaded so many times, and each time the new language was absorbed into the existing one. This explains the many different spellings and pronunciations. I find it fascinating, but I’m also very glad I am a native speaker! ๐Ÿ™‚

    One that’s always been a favorite of mine is wind, as wind in the trees, and wind, as in wind up a music box. How do people ever learn this language!

      Yes, that’s a good one . ๐Ÿ™‚ I am always impressed by how well none ‘natives’ master English. ๐Ÿ™‚
      btw, I have tried to visit your blog, but cannot find it. Maybe you no longer blog, or are private? If you’d like me to follow you, you could pop a link here maybe. Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚
