THE TRICKIEST LANGUAGE CALLED ENGLISH

THE TRICKIEST LANGUAGE CALLED ENGLISH

I will begin with a mouse
And two are called mice
But the plural of house
Is houses and not hice

You may keep your things in a box
And I might keep mine in three boxes
Yet the plural of an ox
Is oxen and not oxes

If the plural of a goose
Is called geese
Wouldn’t the plural of choose
Then be cheese

Let’s look at a man
Two of them become men
But the plural of a pan
Is not the same as pen

You may show me your foot
And I wear shoes on your feet
If I give you a boot
Will a pair be called a beet?

One may be that
And a dozen may be those
But the plural of hat
Imagine it being hose

A person who bakes
Is known as a baker
But a person who cooks
Can never be a cooker

Words like honest and hour
Both have a silent “h”
Imagine saying hook and hood
Without the sound of “h”

Don’t you agree that
The English Language
Is indeed the
Trickiest Language.
