48 Times The English Language Made No Sense

Blessed be those who didn’t have to go through the trouble of learning English. Some might say that learning Japanese or Icelandic might be the most difficult task out there, but even the most complicated aspects of those languages have some kind of logic behind them. English, on the other hand, has some truly nonsensical characteristics to it and a plethora of arbitrary rules.

Those with English as their native language never have to consciously work through the kinks of spelling out Wednesday or why writers write, but fingers don’t fing and grocers don’t groce. Learning English as a secondary language is a real minefield once you figure out the basics and step into more specific areas. And these people decided to point some of the most confusing things out there to prove their point. English is a weird language and at times makes absolutely no sense, especially for a language that is so widespread.
