Autumn Reflection:
I wonder why the 'n' is silent.

Thought it would be something deep and serious, didn't you?

Wishing you some fun stuff today,

    1. JoAnn,

      You make me chuckle ... who knew there were quite so many silent "N's" in this world.

      I hope the cookie was good.

  3. Because ... because. Well, because.... maybe for the same reason the second e is silent in because?

  4. There are many weird things in the English language, this being one of them. In Texas the city of Mexia is pronounced Ma-HEY-a.

  5. As a teacher I spent many hours explaining silent letters..the hardest were gh, as in light, ought, eight, weigh...and of course ...tough.
    What a language!

  6. Spelling is not my forte, by a long shot. When words like autumn, tough, or knife come up, I get so confused.
    I never attended a Spelling B. I attended a Spelling E!

    I'm coveting your drink, which I assume is some sort of coffee....maybe tomorrow morning.
    Happy Autumn! (or Fall, which I guess has a sort of silent L!)
