If English Were Phonetic, Part 2


Due to popular demand — and by that I mean due to me demanding I do this again — here is another group of words that, if English were phonetic in the way Spanish and other Latin-based languages are, we might have these words  and names with these definitions.

Again, I got these off the Internet. I created none of them, although I wish I was that brilliant and clever.

Bernadette — the act of torching a mortgage or credit card bill.

burglarize — what a crook uses to see. Similarly, polarize is what penguins use to see.

counterfeiters — workers who assemble kitchen cabinets.

eyedropper — a clumsy ophthalmologist.

Left Bank — what the robber did when his bag was full of money.

pharmacist — a helper on a farm.

relief — what trees do in the spring.

rubberneck — what you do to relax your wife, especially when she asks for it.

Until next time! Use the right words!
