Tag Archives: crazy English spelling


You know I’m hooked on words.  I was daydreaming this morning, thinking about the various sounds a double O makes:

Food  (OO)

Good (the schwa sound)

Brooch (OH)

Floor (AW)

Blood (UH)

Cooperate (this is a diphthong: the first O says OH and the second O says AH)

Don’t you wonder how we ever learned to read?
