1 more week until I don’t have to study how f*cking dumb the English language is. (I hate studying for the GRE!)

Did you know that you can get a sanction for not having the proper sanction?

Or that stanch and staunch have different definitions but stanch can be spelled staunch and that staunch can be spelled stanch.

Or that she won’t brook any criticism on her painting of the brook.

Or how the winner will have to prize the prize from the poor loser’s grasp.

Let’s be honest, I’m disinterested in the difference between disinterested and uninterested. Oh sh!t, maybe I meant uninterested in the difference. (Whatever)

The plumber plumbed the viability of rerouting the plumbing before he started the project and stated it would only take an hour. But he had to take a break because he was plumb tuckered out after he fell plumb on his butt while rerouting the pipe plumb to the wall.

The student performed a precipitate titration thus precipitating the precipitate and missing the end point.

But seriously, a word  (scratch that) one word should not be able to be a noun, a verb, and an adjective.

Also, two words with different definitions should not be phonetically identical and allow for the alternate spelling to be the other word.

I think I’ve had too much coffee.
