How to Spell Fish and Potato


Easter was Sunday, so I thought now would be a great time for a spelling lesson, courtesy of the Internet.

How do you spell fish? Ghoti.

Gh pronounced “f” as in enough, O pronounced as “i” in women, Ti pronounced “sh” in nation or motion.

Next, spell potato. Ghoughphtheightteeau.

Gh pronounced “p” as in hiccough, ough pronounced “o” as in dough, phth pronounced “t” as in phthisis, eigh pronounced “a” as in neighbor, tte pronounced “t” as in gazette and  eau pronounced “o” as in plateau.

Ain’t English grand?

Until next time! Use the right words!
