Better than assigning genders to inanimate objects.

If you still think that the English language isn't fucked up enough... "Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo " is a grammatically correct sentence  the meaning of the sentence is "The bison from Buffalo, confuse other bison from Buffalo who confuse the bison from Buffalo"

English: The language that hides in dark alleys and beats up other languages for words and syllables

There's a difference between speaking English and speaking English like an asshole. Just because the language gives you the option to use it confusingly doesn't make it shit.

I think that's why a lot of people like it actually. There's lots of room for word play. Tumblr slut just likes to think she's edgy cultured by revering other languages over her own.

Mandarin has the equally awful 'Lion-eating poet in the stone den' language SNAFU. In English this poem is pronounced thusly: "Shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi shi" (With slight varaiations on the inflection of the i).

What do you mean read and read don't rhyme?
I don't see any difference in their pronunciations. Someone prease exprain.

"Read" as in "Go read a book" is pronounced "reed."

"Read" as in "I have read many books" is pronounced "red."

"Lead" as in "My pipes are made of lead" is pronounced "led."

"Lead" as in "I will lead my people to freedom" is pronounced "leed."

English has some strange tendencies.
You know what other languages do too?
All of them.

I still don't understand Spanish sentence structure. How does saying "The truck red" make sense?

language explain please help

Read and Lead can be pronounced in two ways. Each of those pronunciations rhyme with another but the alternates do not.


For clarification I will use phonetic spelling:

Reed and Leed rhyme.
Red and Led rhyme.
Reed and Led do not.
Red and Leed do not.
