There are many people who tell English language is superior among other languages. It may be right but there are funny things which exists with English language also. I just went through the plurals given by George Carlin.
We’ll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes,
But the plural of ox becomes oxen, not oxes
We just accept most of them blindly and go with them whereas in Tamil there are rules for representing them in plural. Similar example is given below which also sounds funny.
If the plural of man is always called men,
Why shouldn’t the plural of pan be called pen ?
They also sound funny with pronounds similar to the plurals as given above. I may not be very fluent in English but I dont remember anyone teaching how these words are formed and from where they are derived and there is no any rule to form same kind of word.
The masculine pronouns are he, his & him,
But imagine the feminine: she, shis & shim !
We are currently talking English which is a crazy language among other languages where we can’t find neither apple nor pine in pineapple and find the “rings” in square shape in boxing and wrestling sports.
We ship by truck but send cargo by ship
We can keep saying very many things which sounds crazy and funny and still we keep using these words without thinking anything. Got one more.
If a vegetarian eats vegetables,
What does a humanitarian eat ?
So don’t blame on other languages which has more meaningful things within itself and also has rules for each and everything. Let me end up with another funniest
If Father is Pop,
How come Mother is not Mop ??
