I hate to be that guy, but this is quite oversimplified. The GH is only pronounced as an F if it immediately follows OU, and TI is only pronounced that way if it is before ON.

what about the words though and thought? those are followed by OU and do not sound like F. and what about the word cautious? TI is before OUS not ON.

I said that GH is only pronounced as F if it follows OU, but that doesn't mean that it can't be pronounced other ways when it follows OU. And as for TI, I suppose you are right, I hadn't though of that. But it certainly wouldn't be pronounced like SH at the end of a word.

See this is another reason why english is awful. I thought you meant if GH follows OU it can only be pronounced like F. When you really meant: if F is to be how GH is pronounced, GH must be preceded by OU. And your right, TI would not sound like SH at the end of a word. But the point of this is to say that english is confusing, and needs context in order to understand how to pronounce things, unlike other languages where the letters are generally pronounced one way.

The worst one by far is the -ough suffix.

Enough- "Uff"
Cough- "Off"
Bough- "Ow"
Dough- "Oh"
Bought- "Ah"
Through- "Oo"

****** ridiculous.

No English is one of the most difficult, because it's not really similar to any other language.

English is hard when it's not your first language. Any language is pretty easy to learn as a first language, English is very difficult as a second language

english = easiest of all germanic languages. Now I agree english has certain "levels" of difficulty, but basic english is really easy. It only gets hard (for foreigners) when people start to talk like politicians or scientists, and use all kinds of words that even the average englishman doesn't always understand.

Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo.

James, while John had had "had", had had "had had" ; "had had" had had a better effect on the teacher.

The child the parents had had had had had no breakfast.

Fishy fish fishy fish fish fish fishy fish.

It was 'and,'" I said, "not 'are,' and 'and' and 'are' are different.

Fat people eat accumlates.


The horse raced past the barn fell.


The old man the ships.

That is the way it is, in that it is that way. It is that way in that it is the way that it is.

That that is, is; that that is not, is not.

That that that that boy has dwarfs that that that that boy has.

All grammatically correct sentences. English sucks.

I have to agree with you on that one, i learned german and now speak it fluently, there is the ich, du, wir, ihr, Sie, and sie forms of every verb excluding irregular ones. English in comparison is pretty damn simple.
