Subject: IMPORTANT NOTICE about English spelling:


Isn't written English such a great language?

Loose rhymes with caboose. 
Lose rhymes with choose. 
Chose rhymes with blows.

Brow rhymes with cow. 
Bow [act of bending forward to acknowledge applause] rhymes with cow, but bow [with arrow] rhymes with arrow.

Bough rhymes with cow, but cough rhymes with off.

'Off' rhymes with doff, but 'of' rhymes with love.

Dove [a bird] rhymes with love, but dove [past tense of dive] rhymes with cove.

Trough rhymes with doff, but tough rhymes with duff.

Through rhymes with blew, but though rhymes with blow.

Thorough and borough rhyme with burro.

Knight, night, might, mite, light, kite, blight, bright, bite, fight, flight, fright, right, rite, write, sight, site, tight, trite all rhyme with quite.

Notice my sarcasm yet?

IntemetAdvocate is _not_ InternetAdvocate. [Note that m looks like rn in Intemet.]  This warning is needed, due to a fraudulent poser IntemetAdvocate using my name in the Real Name field and trying to pose as me InternetAdvocate.
