What Does G-H-O-T-I Spell?


A friend of mine posed this question to me last week. He probably didn’t make it up; it’s probably on the Internet somewhere. But it demonstrates how strange English can be.

To answer the question, one must ask these three questions:

What sound does the gh make in enough? 

What sound does the o make in women?

What sound does the ti make in nation?

The answers: F, I and SH.

FISH.

Until next time! Use the right words!
