Been thinkin' bout words.
Does anyone else find it weird that 'doing' (the verb (doo-ing)) and 'doing' (the noise (doyng)) are spelt the same?
'Noise' is a weird word too. It could be the oi combination. I'm going to say some words out loud to test this theory
"Oink" ok yes that's weird too
"Boing" not as weird
"Oil" is a really strange word
"Poison" this one seems to have escaped the weird oi curse
"Coin" definitely weird. maybe it's only one-syllable oi words
"Join" hmm, not weird
"Loin" definitely weird. tee hee loin
"Moine" fuck off it's moine! ok that's not a word
"Toilet" not weird - I think it's only weird if there's an 'n' sound after the 'oi.'
Yeah that's definitely it. Words sound weird if they have 'oin' in them.
Ointment. Boink. I hope you have enjoyed this presentation.
