WHY ENGLISH IS A DI

QUOTE:

WHY ENGLISH IS A DIFFICULT LANGUAGE Beware of heard, a dreadful word That looks like beard, but sounds like bird. And dead; it's said like bed, but looks like bead, For goodness sake don't call it deed. Watch out for meat, and great, and threat, They rhyme with suite, and straight, and debt. A moth is not a moth, as in mother Or both as in bother, or broth as in brother. And here is not a match for there, Nor dear and fear, for bear and pear.
