If English Were Phonetic


I didn’t create any of the following. These were found on the Internet.

If English words were pronounced phonetically the way Spanish and other Latin-based languages are, we might have these words and these definitions:

arbitrator — someone who leaves Arby’s to work for another fast food place

avoidable — what a bullfighter tried to do

eclipse — what a barber does for a living

heroes — what a guy in a boat does

paradox — two physicians

parasites — what you see from atop the Eiffel Tower

primate — remove your spouse from in front of the TV or computer or phone

selfish — what the owner of a seafood store does

Sudafed — litigation brought against a government official

Until next time! Use the right words!
