These are the words that drive me crazy. I like to think I have a decent vocabulary, and that I can craft some descriptive and meaningful sentences.
But these words.
I never spell them right on the first try. They always look WRONG to me. Maybe it’s the repeated character (tt, rr, uu respectively). Perhaps it’s just the weird nature of how they look on screen.
Maybe it’s just the American sense of language not being used to things like a “aghe” in the middle of the word. I did take Italian in High School for two years, and while I was bad at it, I grew up in a household where foreign language was often in the air, so I’m used to some weird sounds and inflections.
Diarrhea, please tell me what purpose that “h” serves? Because it looks dumb there, and I hate it.
Vacuum … why?
These really should be SPAGETTI, DIAREA, and VAKYOOM.
These are the thoughts I have at 4:30 in the morning when I wake up after a time change.
