If o was pronounced like it was in women, it's an i
if ti was pronounced like it was in nation, it's sh.

"Ghoti is a constructed word used to illustrate irregularities in English spelling. It is a respelling of the word fish: i.e., it is supposed to be pronounced /ˈfɪʃ/. It comprises these phonemes:
gh, pronounced /f/ as in tough ;
o, pronounced /ɪ/ as in women and
ti, pronounced /ʃ/ as in nation"
