English Language - İngilizce

Let's face it English is a stupid language. There is no egg in theeggplant, nohamin the hamburger, and neitherpinenorapplein thepineapple. English muffins were not invented in England, French fries were not invented in France.

We sometimes take English for granted, but if we examine its paradoxes we find thatquicksandtakes you down slowly. Boxing rings are square and aguinea pigis neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.

If writers write, how come fingers don't fing. If the plural of tooth is teeth, shouldn't the plural of phoneboothbe phone beeth. If the teacher taught, why didn't thepreacherpraught?

If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what the heck does ahumanitarianeat!? Why do peoplereciteat a play, yet play at arecital? Park ondrivewayand drive onparkways?

You have tomarvelat the uniquelunacyof a language where a house can burn up as it burns down. And in which you fill in a form by filling it out. And a bell is only heard once it goes!

English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the humanrace(which of course isn't araceat all)

That is why when the stars are out they are visible; but when the lights are out they are invisible. And why it is that when Iwind upmy watch it starts; But when Iwind upthis observation, it ends.
