I take it you already know of tough  and bough and  cough and dough?

Other may stomble but not you

On hiccough, throrough, slough,and through

Well done! And now you wish perharps,

to learn of less familiar traps?


Beware of heard, a dredful word

That looks like beard and sounds like bird.

And dead it´s said like bed not ¨deed¨!

Watch oout for meat and great and Threat

(They rhyme with suite and straight and debt).

A moth is not a moth in mother,

Nor both in bother, borth in brother,

And here is not a match for there,

Nor dear or fear for bear and pear

And then there´s doze and rose and lose

Just look them up- and gooses and choose-

And cork and work and front and word and sword,

And do and go and thwart and cart

A dreadful Language? Man alive!

I´d learned to speak it when I was five!

And yet to write it, the more I sigh,

I´ll not learn how ´till the day I die. 


try to say it without interruption and please let me know
