    You know what else is confusing about English are the homophones: accept - except, etc. But "read" is definitely one of the more what-the-fuck prone words being that it is a heteronym (same spelling; different pronunciation). Honorable mentions: tire (fatigue, wheel), fluke (many meanings) Boner Jamz~

    And yet, the past tense of "lead" is spelled "led". Someone should hit English spelling on the head with a lead pipe...

    Of course little Li knew bad words. When studying languages, most everyone learns those first. Take high school Spanish...

    @ Blue - Thanks for mentioning "cut". Several of my German friends have expressed admiration for the verb "put", because it is invariant across all three of the standard forms (present, past, and participle). Now I have a second example that I can cite. P.S. @ Jake - One of the nastiest "heteronyms" is "bow", which has multiple pronunciations and meanings (as verb or noun, respectively).

    If that happens with people who speak the language since kids, what is left for the one who is learning it? I agree with her about some verbs, WTF?
