Most native English speakers pronounced the words properly immediately in their head when reading those confusing sentences, so it has something to do with how they are used and where they are in the sentence. English is my wife's second language and even after 20+ years the tense of some words within a sentence gets her confused. Why is it like this/not like that and I'm like "I don't know, it just is LOL"

Try speaking Piraha which has no fixed words for colors. And for more fun, check out this video on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=272163710851149

#9 is actually potato in Welsh.

I think English is the only major language where words can’t all be pronounced phonetically. Do they have spelling bees in non-English speaking countries?

English words come from many different languages, each with their own pronunciation rules.

#35 In German, a single s is pronounced z. English is a Germanic language, so it makes sense.

I remember Gallagher doing a bit on this stuff in 1984. It's too bad he's only remembered for the Sledge-O-Matic. He was a brilliant comedian.

Obie,

okay but say OUR in a sentence and speak as if you were taking to a friend. “Do you want to come over to our house.” You don’t say HOUR house, most of us are lazy and say R HOUSE.
