  1. Words, how they sound and how to spell them...

    Hi Kenton, this is quite an unusual, and, I must add, interesting list of words.

    Although I enjoyed reading about them, I am compelled to store the list away and out of the radar of my learners -- spelling issues...

    My favourite in your group is "membrain" -- thanks for this intersting read!
