Why English is So Hard?


Why English is so hard?

 

We will begin with a box, and the plural is boxes

But the plural of ox should be oxen, not oxes

Then one fowl is goose, but two are called geese

Yet the plural of moose should never be meese

 

You may find a lone mouse or a whole lot of mice

But the plural of house is houses, not hice

If the plural of man is always called man

Why shouldn’t the plural of pan be called pen?

 

The cow in the plural maybe cows or kine

But the plural of vow is vows, not vine

And I speak of a foot and you show me your feet

But I give you a boot, would be a pair be called beet?

 

If one is a tooth and a whole set is teeth

Why shouldn’t the plural of booth be called beeth?

If the singular is this, and the plural is these

Should the plural of kiss be nick named kese?

 

Then one maybe that, and three maybe those

Yet the plural of hat would never be hose

We speak of a brother, and also the brethren

But though we say, mother we never say methren

 

The masculine pronouns are he, his, and him

But imagine the feminine she, shis, and shim

So our English I think you will agree,

Is the trickiest language you ever did see!
