THE WAY THEY ORDER THEIR WORDS IS HELL

When I was really little, I would say things like, "food want me" because English words are ordered so strangely.

The "silent letters " in words.

-Knife

-knight


.o. why the need of the K in front of these words? Every time I would say "ka-ni-fe" .

You're a native english speaker rain.....what are you taaalkimg about? There is no reason in the world for you to find English syntax awkward.

Its not weird by the way, to assert ego, then define interactions that take place between the ego and material.

True English is actually likely far more complex than I truly realize. I just look shut up, then try to say that word best I can. To hell with a dictionary's 'phonetical' sounding of a word.

Spelling. It's one of least regular languages when it comes to spelling and pronunciation.

What FrenchGirl said, but French language also has silent letters. The English R is more like pirate sound "Arrr" than "w" though.
