Ways to spell the 44-plus English sounds

  1. And there I was, thinking that the dahlia was named after a botanist called Dahl, and pronounced just the same as his name.

    Oh, wait a minute, it is.

    I really do think that you are going to have to start all over again, learning English, Mashabell. We are having to explain almost every single word to you!

    Fete, by the way, does not rhyme with great.
    Champagne - well, another French word, but if we're going to mispronounce it, I suppose we might as well spell it wrong too. Then we could probably get round EU AC regulations and make our own!! .
