Elusive English - Why the English Language Is So Hard To Learn

What did they say?
This post is going to talk about a peripheral, but fundamental, element to both writing and publishing.

The language used to paint stories, legal contracts, instructions, teaching lessons, laws, campaign point papers, jokes, directions etc., etc., etc.

What would we do without our languages? And even with them, some people still tend to interpret the same words differently! Talk about bending the subject to suit their own purposes :)

If anything, we all should pause, reflect and appreciate what people go through when learning to communicate AND write in another language.

Now, all languages must have their eccentricities, but I believe English is probably one of the hardest languages to learn. Why? Too many words having the same spelling but different meanings and even pronunciations at times.

Time to have a little fun :) Here are just some of the reasons why the English language is so hard to learn:

> The bandage was wound around the wound.
This is too HARD! I don't understand 

> 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 would get the lead out.

> The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.

> Since there is no time like the present, she thought it was time to present the present.

> A 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 oarsmen about how to row.

> They were too close to the door to close it.

> The buck does funny things when the does are present.

> A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line.

> To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow.

> The wind was too strong for the mates to wind the sail.

> 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.

> How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend?
