THE TRICKIEST LANGUAGE CALLED ENGLISH



I'll 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 the 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 the PAN
Is not the same as PEN

You may show me your FEET
and wear shoes on your FOOT
If i give you a BOOT
Will a pair is called BEET?

One may be THAT
And a dozen may be THOSE
But the plural HAT
Imagine it being HOSE

A person who BAKES
Is knows as a BAKER
But a person who COOKS
Can be never be a COOKER

Words like HONEST and HOUR
Both have 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
