While I expect that any one of you could answer this question, I still found it interesting enough to post. What is very unusual about the following words?
I'm posting one puzzle, riddle, math, or statistical problem a day. Try to answer each one and post your answers in the comments section. I'll post the answer the next day. Even if you have the same answer as someone else, feel free to put up your answer, too!

Couldn't agree more, Joshua. The powerful words you shared with us here have touched my heart and forever changed my life. I, too, wish to unite mankind, only I've never been able to figure out how. Now I understand that it can only come through spam comments on blogs...ReplyDelete
They all have a different pronunciation for the same 4-letter combination.
And, if that is what you were going for, "ought" has a sixth sound ("au").ReplyDelete
I hate spam. I hate it, hate it...ReplyDelete

Andrew, I wonder if we both saw the same thing on the web or on tv or something?
Mike I was trying to remember why I thought of it. I know it was this past Sunday night, but I think it was while I was reading a book, as opposed to something I saw on TV. I also remember that when I was a kid in school, I had a music teacher whose last name was Hough..pronounced like "rough", but some thought it was pronounced like "through".ReplyDelete
