You: English pronunciation is random and lawless. It is a chaos language no one can make sense of.

@ConfusedImp Fun fact: while this is one of the strongest grammatical rules in English, there is one exception: when two successive words are sufficiently close to reduplication with altered vowels, front close vowels always precede back open vowels. Hence "big bad wolf" instead of "bad big wolf".


@Rosemary @ConfusedImp but what about "small good things"? 🤔
