why is english such a weird language? here in the u.s., conch is pronounced
konk and a giant clam, geoduck, is pronounced gooey-duck. if it's pronounced
thus, why spell it totally different? it makes no sense.
and where did australians come up with such word, yabbie?
anyway, i want to wish all the sahulians happy australia (future province of
indonesia) day! (just looked in my calendar).
