Off-tangent post... I like how you spelled suiside. It should be spelt that way, IMO. The english language (native english speaker here) is very
inconsistent. It's a pet peeve of mine.
Why does the letter 'c' sometimes sound like 's'? If it sounds like 's'... I have a brilliant plan... use 's'?
I must be a genius....
Why do we have 'c' and 'k'.... when many times, they have the same sound?
Why do we have 'x'... when all that it is... is the sound of 'ks' and 'cts'? Ex: sax = sacks, sex = secks (ETA: = sects....Why?
Why does 'q' always have to have a 'u' following it? Why is 'q' so special that way, in that it's the only letter with that kind of rule- where
another letter must
The letter 'y' is unnecessary in words like cry, fly, try. 'ie' would do nicely.
'y' is necessary in words like grey, slay, may, however.
Our society is so 'sophisticated', supposedly... but people who look at our alphabet probably wonder if a child invented some of the letters.
