Mr Red BS: English as taught in Nordic countries (108* d) RE: BS: English as taught in Nordic countries 01 Sep 20


the spelling of Capitalisation as used by one American [Capitalization] on this forum is in my opinion an abomination.

well the use of zeds (never zeees) does raise my hackles. But it has to be said that English (English or American) is anything but logical. A bastard language is bound to throw such lack of spelling/pronunciation logic or consistent orthogonality.
so / though / bow / hoe / snow
cow / bow / bough / how


or even Edinburgh / Peterborough / Middlesbrough.

and don't even get me started on OZ / Kiwi use of nouns automatically as verbs ................. despite the obvious / logical / orthogonality!
