English is w e i r d


@melunaka I once talked with a bunch of, like, not native French speakers, and we were talking about that word and how it was weird that it is pronounced like that and there's this German girl who tells me "wait, this word is French, right? How do you pronounce that in French"
and I was like "we literally say all the letters" and she was like "since when does French pronounce all the letters in a word?"
and, you know, fair enough lmao

@AliceinCrystalTokyo I mean, you could say that for English too so 🤷 🤷 🤷 🤷 🤷 Just kinda remembering English is not more logical or simpler than French, just differently weird and illogical 😋
