Silence is not golden.

Posted: January 14, 2012 in Random

Silent letters can go fuck themselves. Or better yet, go fuk themselves. Why hasn’t someone realized that silent letters are unnecessary in so many words. Here are a few examples:

  • Through – 3 silent letters.  Let’s just go with thru.
  • Though – same scenario. Let’s go with tho.
  • Dead – The a is unnecessary. Let’s go with ded.
  • Death – deth
  • Head – hed
  • John – jon

People are all about creating acronyms to save time, so why can’t we just do another time-saver and lose the silent letters when they aren’t needed?  I don’t think there is any confusion with the words above. Sure, sometimes silent letters have an impact, so they shouldn’t all be trashed. Ones like in the examples above, tho, are completely useless.

How does that make you feel?
