Inspired by Carrie Hope Fletcher’s video: Things I Don’t Understand
This post is basically a list of things that don’t make sense to me, thought you might find it interesting, probably not, but here you go anyway!
Things that puzzle me:
– Words that sound the same. For example Blew and Blue, no and know, red and read. There’s many many more. It’s just sooo confusing. Why can’t the English language be more simple???
– On that same note, you can use the same word in the same sentence meaning two entirely different things, isn’t that crazy?! For example: They were too close to the door to close it.
– Why do we call things a pair when there not? For example: a pair of trousers or knickers. Is it because they have 2 holes for legs? Even so, It’s still just one item of clothing.
– Why is W called ‘double U’ when it’s actually more like two V’s together?
-Who decides when a word becomes a word?
-Why is it impossible to think of another, colour, number or letter than what all ready exists?
Just a few things that have been playing on my mind, I realize these are mostly about the English language, but it’s just so weird!
