English weirdness.

Through, threw. Pronounced the same.

Your, You're also the same.

Their, there, they're, are once again the same.

Four, for are same.

can not, and cannot are the same.

be cause and because.

be for and before.

But why? Why not I guess.

Now for random interjections

Under the rules of English, it’s possible to spell the word fish GHOTI. Gh as in laugh, o as in women, ti as in motion. Crazy...

Jabba Ree 🌹, 👉😕👈 NOPE.. in most cases not. At least not from the ones who learned the british version and don't consume english media. But if someone know how to talk and has its accent then ..well then its even easier to understand him as i would understand a native speaker.

5̀øÑ͜ ̕0f Æ̨ ğłīťç̴H, well, I was taught British English in school, but when I heard the real one, I noticed that my life was a lie. Then, I got fascinated by American English. Anyway, that's not the point. Try to train your listening skills. If you listen carefully, I'm sure you can understand almost every accent.

Jabba Ree 🌹, yes.. i think we had this topic allready under another card^^ The big problem at the moment is that I have noone who really speaks english anymore.. so listening isn't the problem for me but speaking it with getting feedback is.

Well, "they're, there, their" are different. Same for "you're and your", unless you pronounce it like "yer". In that case, yes, they sound similar.

I'm from michigan, so I dont have an accent. Michigan is known for having very pure English

I can't really say anything, since I haven't heard every accent. Also, I tried "you're and your" in different sentences, and maybe you're right. Sometimes they sound similar.

Unknown, Brits!. i think they pronounce each one differently..

Unknown, you can't not have an accent. There's no such thing as "pure" language

And people says that Spanish is hard. Meeeeh. British english, american english, aussie english, chinese english, whatever english 😥

You forgot Indian english☝ THAT IS REALLY HARD. I'm just able to write with an Indian friend but if he talks I just understand like 50% of it.. And it's very embarrassing to ask everytime 'what??'..

5̀øÑ͜ ̕0f Æ̨ ğłīťç̴H, haha yeaah! I missed that. I met people who went there and they said their English wasn't really English-english. Well you kno 😅
5̀øÑ͜ ̕0f Æ̨ ğłīťç̴H
Lovelisco, they even write and laugh differently. I can find you an Indian just by his 'hehehe' laugh.😂

5̀øÑ͜ ̕0f Æ̨ ğłīťç̴H, ha! Nice catch😆

They aren't pronounced the same. Just like there and they're.
Escape 🎃
Nikhil, technically they're not but very few people enunciate well enough that you could tell the difference, assuming people are listening for it

Escape 🌹, I guess non native English speakers pronounce it 'better' as there's no way your and you're or there and they're would sound the same to me.
Escape 🎃
Cis white Goat, you pronounce it as it's meant to be. But the person listening also has to be attuned to it
Nikhil
Escape 🌹, I don't think people can get confused when it comes to there and they're even if they have different accents.
Escape 🎃
Nikhil, they wouldn't get confused since they're hearing it in context

It's not unique to English. I've been trying to learn Vietnamese, words can be spelled the same, and sound the same, but have a different meaning by a ' over a vowel. It either sounds up, like a question, or down like a statement. They don't emphasize emotion, because the tones have meanings! I've also tried to learn polish. Wow now I know why some say it's one of the hardest 2nd languages.

Think about Chinese, Japanese or Korean. Those languages have much more omophones (that's how such words are called in Russia, whatever) as they are based on characters.

The word of moving air is wind exactly same spelled but completely different pronounced rewind.

Wind Either pronounced WINd or WHYnd. Pronunciation completely flips the meaning. WINd is the air that blows outside. WHYnd is to coil around. They're spelled the same. Wind. Point being rewind is to reel it back again, not make air blow again. That's why its pronounced that way.
