"THAT'S HOW WORDS WORK" Really??
Slaughter / Laughter?
Danger / Anger?
Island? (why can't I hear the "S"?!)
Laughing? (huh, there's a "F" in it?!)
Sight (huh, where did the "F" go?!)

Reading words like that will make you look like an idiot, so don't.
Words work like that in MOST languages, but NOT in English.

I discovered an interesting article in my grammar book one year. Apparently, you can spell "fish" as "ghoti" using "gh" from "laughing" or "tough", the "o" from "women", and the "ti" from "motion" or "action".

Try it on a spelling test. If your teacher tells you it's wrong, refer her to your phonetics book.

English is one of few modern languages that is not very consistent with its phrasing. This is primarily why it is difficult to learn English from non-native speakers.

thumb for noticing that. :D

Also words like "read" which can can be read two ways.  So "Just like it's spelled" wouldn't work for it. *pic unrelated unless you a crack spider*
