Why is hyphenated non-hyphenated and non-hyphenated hyphenated.
@vj , because you touch yourself at night
@The Landshark , not just at night. That would be under utilizing my talents.
Because English is the Frankenstein's Monster of languages (still better than French though since they don't have words for 70, 80, or 90)
@The Landshark , or "victory"
@Empshok, good one
Because people who say "refrigerator" instead of "fridge" are far less likely to consider inserting their penis into their icebox.
@Empshok, I put my 🍆 in the refrigerator all the time
Well Zoey and Zoe usually are said like Joey and Joe. Not always but usually
@All my Mizore, yeah I’ve never heard a different way to pronounce it...
Because "fridge" is closer derived from the word "frigid" which does have a D. In print, the D was added to people would know how to pronounce the word because they hadn't seen it often in writing, so they'd know it rhymed with "bridge" instead of sounding like "frig" as in "frig off"
Back in the day it used to be common to put umlauts to indicate vowels should be pronounced separately rather than a diphthong (ie coöperate). Zoe used to be spelt Zoë when this was common while Joe was never spelt this way so the practice of pronouncing the e on its own never became a thing
I don’t get then joe one. Joe Joey Zoe Zoey. They seem the same.
@x2 6x 9 lol, zoe is pronounced zo-e
@big freedom, I always pronounced it as Zo
@big freedom, I also would pronounce it as Zo since the only person I have ever known with that name pronounced it that way
@Mkb617, weird. I’ve never heard of anyone pronouncing it Zo...
Zoe saldana, Zoe Bell. All Zo-e
@big freedom, looking it up online it seems that it is most commonly and “supposed to be” pronounced zo-e, I must have just known a weirdo lol
