Re: “Dr. Word Asks: Ghoti Tacos, Anyone?

"Ghoti" for fish has survived for a long time as an example of the quirks and idiocy of English spelling. Unfortunatly (sic) it is not a good analogy. No English word starts with sounding /f/. And the only word I can think of that ends in is Pacific island Kiribati, and there is sounds /s/.

I agree from experience that much time is wasted teaching spelling, a tool subject we ar besotted over, presumably because it givs us so much unnecessary trouble.
