Everybody knows: English, the language, is boring. In other languages we have words that sound funny, regardless of their meaning (often meaning is funny as well, but not necessarily) Now so with English. However, I managed to find a word that sound funny to me: brouhaha. Now I wonder if it's only me Do you know other words that sound funny for native speakers (Russians are disqualified and disallowed to participate, because of dirty frame of mind )
The longest word in the English language is commonly thought to be: antidisestablishmentantarianism - an extinct English political group when in fact it is: pnuemonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis - a lung disease one gets from breathing volcanic dust. Another interesting tidbit... the game of golf did not originate in Scotland, it was imported there in it's primitive form by the Dutch who called it Spel Metten Kolve And according to George Carlin you should never eat food that has both a 'Y' and a 'G' in it like yogurt!
Wait a minute, I'm trying to think of something clever to say...<p>Joel
