There are more words that break the, "i before e except after c," rule than follow it. Just putting that out there.
@Orange Sherbert, give me an example
@The guy with the gun, glacier, beige, vein, protein, science, society, ancient, species, height, heist, forfeit, eight, neither, either, seize, theist, sleight, freight, forfeit...
@The guy with the gun, neighbor, reign, feisty, their, vein, and about 400 others I can't think of right now.
There's about 100 words that follow the rule.
@Ser Waffle Knight, holy shít
@Ser Waffle Knight, Isn't English a fun language? No wonder why it's extremely difficult for non-natives to learn.
@ragnellalondite, why is Kansas pronounced way differently than Arkansas when the only difference is the 'ar'
@The guy with the gun, it's a WEIRD rule
@Orange Sherbert, that's actually not true
@Orange Sherbert, the rule was created for old/early modern English which had a wider rage of pronunciations
@Orange Sherbert, i was always taught "i before e, except after c, or when saying 'ay' as in neighbor or weigh". Do some places leave out that end bit?
@whirligig1at6, half of these are after C.. but i get the point lol
Remember, I before E... unless you're running a feisty heist on a weird, beige, foreign neighbor
The "i" before "e" rule only applies to words with a hard "e" sound. That's why words like heist and neighbor are different. The more you know...
This is tge procedure for dealing with a grammer nazi. Friends don't let friends become grammer nazis
Their is one word that doesn't follow that
For some reason, I get the feeling that most of these memes are from cowbelly (youtube, he has some good shjt)
When you try to help a friend but they're dumb af. lol
@Hannah Kanaan, y-yeah, that occured here
