~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let's face it, English is a crazy language...
There is no EGG in EGGPLANT, no HAM in HAMBURGER, neither APPLE, nor PINE in PINEAPPLE
ENGLISH MUFFINS were not invented in ENGLAND nor FRENCH FRIES in FRANCE? Sweet-meats are candy, while sweet breads, which aren't sweet, but are meat? 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 WRITER'S 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?

In what other language do people play at a recital. and recite at a play? We ship by truck, but send cargo by ship. WE have noses that run, and feet 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, and a wise man and a wise guy are opposite?

You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up while it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out, and which an alarm goes off by going on. And in closing if Father is POP, how come Mother's not MOP?

Hopefully, this will get you off to a great start for this week!!!

As Dr. Seuss says:

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the girl who'll decide where to go."
