Eye Halve a Spelling Chequer!

Have you ever wondered why English is so hard to learn? Most of us just complain that immigrants won’t learn English. Those who have never bothered to learn another language do not understand how truly inconsistent English is. But because I studied Spanish and Russian, I can tell you that English is the hardest language in the world to learn. There are thousands of words that “sound” the same, but are not spelled the same. In other languages, people are not saddled with predetermined errors. As most of you already know, your computer spell checker will not catch ill-used homonymns, so this poem is a humorous look at what could pass by your poor dumb spell checker. It will help if you read it outloud. The brain is too used to seeing these words to decipher them without getting a headache!

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rarely ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect in it’s weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
