    English is a crazy language


    English is a crazy language

    We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes
    but the plural of ox became oxen not oxes
    One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese
    yet the plural of moose should never be meese
    You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice
    yet the plural of house is houses, not hice
    If the plural of man is always called men
    why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?I

    If I spoke of my foot and show you my feet
    and I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?I
    If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth
    why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?I
    Then one may be that, and three would be those
    yet hat in the plural would never be hose
    and the plural of cat is cats, not cose
    We speak of a brother and also of brethren
    but though we say mother, we never say methren
    Then the masculine pronouns are he, his and him
    but imagine the feminine, she, shis and shim

    Some other reasons to be grateful if you grew up
    speaking English:I

    The bandage was wound around the wound

    The farm was used to produce produce

    The dump was so full that it had to refuse more
    refuse

    We must polish the Polish furniture

    He could lead if he would get the lead out
    The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the
    desert

    Since there is no time like the present, he thought
    it was time to present the present

    At the Army base, a bass was painted on the head of
    a bass drum

    When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes

    I did not object to the object

    The insurance was invalid for the invalid

    There was a row among the oarsmen about how to
    row

    They were too close to the door to close it

    The buck does funny things when the does are
    present

    A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer
    line
    To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow
    to sow

    The wind was too strong to wind the sail



    After a number of Novocain injections, my jaw got
    number

    Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a
    tear

    I had to subject the subject to a series of tests

    How can I intimate this to my most intimate
    friend?

    I spent last evening evening out a pile of dirt

    Screwy pronunciations can mess up your mind! For
    example: If you have a rough cough, climbing can be
    tough when going through the bough on a tree!

    Let's face it, English is a crazy language. There is
    no egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple
    nor pine in pineapple.

    English muffins weren't invented in England.

    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 nor 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?

    Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not
    one amend?

    If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of
    all but one of them, what do you call it?

    If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught?

    If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a
    humanitarian eat?

    Sometimes I think all the folks who grew up speaking
    English should be committed to an asylum for the
    verbally insane. In what other language do people
    recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck
    and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet
    that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be
    the same, while a wise man and a wiseguy are
    opposites?

    You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language
    in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in
    which you fill in a form by filling it out and in
    which an alarm goes off by going on.

    And remember you have to chop a tree down before
    chopping it up!

    Enjoy
