A language question
« on: September 24, 2004, 12:29:36 PM »
Do you pronounce the word Flood: "Flod" or "Flood"? And for the word Blood? "Blod" or "Blood"?

Yep, but why Flood is pronounced like Flood and Blood is pronounced like Blod if both are written with 2 o?

I think every natural language has its own strangeness. :D

They're pronounced 'blud' and 'flud'.

blood.  Pronounced bl, then an uh sound (oo equals uh.  Sometimes it equals the letter U without the "y" part, as in "food")

flood.  same as blood, but with fl in front. :thumbsup:

Louise provided the simplest and best explaination by far. In fact, mine to DragonsLover (on MSN) was exactly the same, even though I hadn't read it. :P
