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. QUICKSAND can work SLOWLY, BOXING RINGS are SQUARE, and a GUINEAPIG is neither from GUINEA nor it is a PIG. And why is it that WRITERS WTITE, 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 TEACHERS TAUGHT, why isn't it that in the past PREACHERS PRAUGHT? If a VEGETARIAN eat VEGETABLES, what does a HUMANITARIAN eat?

In what other language do people RECITE at a PLAY and PLAYat a RECITAL? We SHIP BY TRUCK but SEND CARGO BY SHIP . We have NOSES that RUN and FEEL that SMELL. We PARK in a DRIVEWAY and DRIVE in a PARKWAY. And how can a SLIM CHANCE and a FAT CHANCE be the same, while a WISE MAN and a WISE GUY are opposites?

You have to marvel at a unique lunacy of a language in which yout 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, in closing, if FATHER is POP, how come MOTHER'S not MOP?
