    9, alternate spelling, same with 11, nice, didn't know that.

    13 and 14 are proper nouns. That shouldn't count. :)

    Howsabout a poll for Ghotis, that is, words where over 50% of the word is pronounced differently than they are spelled, for example: colonel

      For more spelling and pronunciation fun see here.


      Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
