To celebrate, here’s a factlet about the English language:
The word female is not etymologically related to the word male.
Femele is first cited in 1350 in the OED, and although male was first cited around the same time it was written maal, masle, madle or mawl in Middle English. They came to English from completely different Middle French words, and have eventually converged in terms of pronunciation and spelling.
this was me and the word “facade”
OMG. “Niche,” anyone?
I run into this so often with words that I’ve only ever read, and when it comes time to employ them in a sentence I realize that I actually have no idea how to pronounce it irl.
… Bagel. I am so profound
I think I say this every time, but “awry.” Also, annihilation.
English makes no bloody sense in terms of phonetics anyway.Omg so many damn words. Albeit, haughty, facet… The list goes on.
Todor’s Baba taught herself to speak English from reading newspapers and as such says “read” as “re-add” and it is one of the best reminders of how big a badass she is.
“Hyper-bowl” sounds better than hyperbole anyway
every single child who has ever been home sick from school knows the hell that is Baby Looney Tunes
