“Why the English Language is hard to learn”


The bandage was wound around the wound.
The farm was used to produce produce.
The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse.
We must polish the Polish furniture.
He could lead if he could get the lead out.
The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present.
The bass was painted on the head of the bass drum.
When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes.
I did not object to the object.
The insurance was invalid for the invalid.
There was a row among the oarsman about how to row.
They were too close to the door to close it.
The buck does certain things when does are present.

Oh my, this is so true. The English language makes no sense at times.

Well Joe Petrowsky What you say would be true if we learned ENGLISH BY READING IT, BUT SINCE WE LEARN BY HEARING IT what you say makes no difference. These are different words that sound differently but just happen to be spelled the same.

I always feel bad for people, who didn't grow up here, trying to learn English. It's one of the toughest languages to learn.

Joe yep the use of the same word for two things with completely different meanings can be confusing.
