What If English Were Phonetically Consistent?

Reading English can be frustrating because the spelling of sounds varies a lot. Take for example the letters “ough”. They can be pronounced in at least eight different ways:

  1. Enough
  2. Plough
  3. Through
  4. Though
  5. Thought
  6. Thorough
  7. Cough
  8. Hiccough
