Is English so difficult to learn?…

I am a bit pressed for time today but hope to write on Saturday.  As it happens I may even manage to write about law… but in the meantime, let me share something which I found on the net.  You may have seen it.

Why english is a pain to learn

The bandage was wound around the wound.

The farm was used to produce produce.

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 insurance was invalid for the invalid.

There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row.

They were too close to the door to close it.

After a number of injections my jaw got number.

Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear.

I had to subject the subject to a series of tests.

    I take it you already know
    Of “tough” and “bough” and “cough” and “dough”.
    Others may stumble, but not you,
    On “hiccough”,”thorough”, “lough” and “through”.
    Well done! And now you wish perhaps
    To hear of less familiar traps

    Beware of “heard”, a dreadful word,
    That looks like “beard” but sounds like “bird”.
    And “dead”; its said like “bed” not “bead”-
    For goodness’ sake don’t call it “deed”!
    Watch out for “meat” and “great” and “threat”,
    (They rhyme with “suite” and “straight” and “debt”.)

    A “moth” is not moth in “mother”,
    Nor “both” in “bother”, “broth” in “brother”,
    And “here” is not a match for “there”,
    Nor “dear” and “fear”, for “bear and “pear”.

    And then there’s “dose” and “rose” and “lose”-
    Just look them up- and “goose” and “choose”,
    And “cork” and “work”, and “card” and “ward”
    And “font” and “front”, and “word” and “sword”,
    And “do” and “go”, and “thwart” and “cart”-
    Come, come, I’ve hardly made a start!
    A dreadful language? Man alive
    I’d mastered it when I was five!
