Highly Irregular with Arika Okrent
Thursday, July 08, 2021 | 6:30pm
Have you ever stopped to think about how weird the English language can be? It is riddled with irregular verbs, inconsistent spellings, silent letters, and pronunciations that seem completely random. And then there are the peculiarities of usage: why do we move slowly but never fastly? Why do we count eleven, twelve instead of oneteen, twoteen?
