Dear February



I’m pretty sure the same guy who came up with the spelling of Wednesday was responsible for February too. Doesn’t the whole idea of a silent letter seem oxymoronic? Or maybe just plain moronic.

Then there are those words that seem to need letters that just aren’t there. Segue needs a w. And an ay. Cough needs an f. Colonel definitely needs an r.

Don’t even get me started on Duke’s basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski. How can anyone possibly pronounce a word that begins with krzyz? Obviously, by ignoring all the letters entirely. (For non-sports fans, it’s pronounced Shə-SHEF-ski.) Then there’s bologna, hors d’oeuvres, receipt, jeopardy, gauge, etc.

That’s all for today. Other than this:

    I was quite puzzled when I first saw your post. Where I live (eastern PA) we pronounce February the way it is spelled: FEB-ru-ary. To pronounce it “FEB-yoo-ary” sounds to me, well, funny. I would not let Colonel have that “r” even if it needs one.
