WHAT'S YOUR "POINT?"





7 come 11

© - Tom Hyland

7 or 11 are Winners
On the First Roll of Dice
When Shooting “Craps.”

We did - Crap -
Then - More Crap -
Now Working on ‘Crapola’
And Now - Craps!

Why - Seven? Why Eleven?

Let us Investigate Some Pronunciations -
Eva - Eve - Even - Evening -
Steve - Steven - Stevedore -
Seven -
Eleven -

Why are the Last Two Words -
Pronounced Differently?
The First Seven Sound a Long e -
But - 7 and 11 -
Are Short e’s -
As in - eh -
WHY?

Who Said So?
Why Not SEEVEN -
And ELEEVEN?

Just More English Exceptions?

Or - Just More Crap?
Is English Just a ‘Crap-Shoot?’

Good point. I understand that English is a very difficult language to learn because of the exceptions. And now even our domestic offspring can't even complete a sentence. Maybe Game boy replaced Sesame Street and the kids now have terrific thumb action in place of eloquent tongue action. "wha!!! I dunno!!! if evaan!!! tsawl good!! and all with the adjective f___ing . A tad scarey. J'nia
