ANGLIČTINA, DETI

Why is English hard to learn?

Pri tejto otázke niektorí budeme namietať, že angličtina je ľahká, nechajme však na individuálnom zvážení, aké náročné je naučiť sa po anglicky.

Tento príspevok je skôr na pobavenie sa v rýmovacom duchu a niekomu možno pomôže zapamätať si množné číslo.

Tu je odpoveď na otázku v nadpise:

We’ll begin with box, the plural is boxes,

but the plural of ox is oxen, not oxes.

One fowl is a goose, and two are called geese,

yet the plural of mouse is never called meese.

You may find a lone mouse or a house full of mice,

but the plural of house is houses, not hice.

The plural of man is always men,

but the plural of pan is never pen.

If one is a tooth and the whole set are teeth,

why shouldn’t two booths be called beeth?

If the singular is this and the plural is these,

should be plural of kiss be ever called keese?

We speak of a brother and also of brethren,

but though we say mother, we never say methren.
