    Re: If you pronounce the "L" in "salmon," you deserve to be shot

    I was looking at a fifth grade spelling book, on a chapter about silent letters. They listed as having a silent "l" "salmon", of course, but also "chalk" and "psalms."

    I sat there saying "chock" and "sahms" to myself, but could never make it sound right.

    This reminds me that, according to the OED, there is no "r" sound in "comfort."

    Can we stop talking about cum feet for two seconds and get back to the point?


    If you say the "T" in "filet" you don't HAVE to die, but you should go back and take 3rd grade English.

    Being sent to school or being killed for mispronouncing a word? Harsh much? What do you do to people who kill or something?
