English is so weird.....

The English language is so weird, I marvel at the fact that we seem to love it despite it's absurd lack of logic...

Goose, geese,
Moose, .....mooses

Mouse, Mice

Swim, swam
Trim, ....trimmed

I'm thinking about learning english and vocabulary because I'm back to one of my favorite pastimes, designing games. In this case, I'm looking at Learning Vocabulary Fun, a site with vocabulary word games, trying to figure out games would be popular and useful for building vocabulary. Also, which ones would be within my means to build. As I looked around, I read some of Avko's comments on Crazy English....

Reasons why some people think English is hard to learn. Or, reasons why other people (like me) think English is great fun to learn.

1) The bandage was wound around the wound.
2) The farm was used to produce produce.
3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
4) We must polish the Polish furniture.
5) He could lead if he would get the lead out.
6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.
8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.

Coming soon on Learning Vocabulary Fun, new games dealing with idiomatic expressions.
