Nice! I'd have left off the 'v' entry.

I'm more impressed by the invisible English letters like the 'f' in "rough".

    There's an invisible 'f' in "laughter" but the invisible 'f' is silent in "daughter".

      For me there is also an invisible "f" in "lieutenant" as the standard British pronunciation is like "leftenant"

        What proper Englishman would want to be promoted to be a "loo tenant"?
