Mitchell Moffit of AsapTHOUGHT raises a couple of valid points about the confounding absurdity of the English language. For example, there's the pronunciation of similarly spelled words, and the confusion around the pluralization of words, and more!
When you speak of a box the plural is boxes, yet the plural of ox should be oxen not oxes. One is a goose and two are called geese, yet the plural of moose should never be meese. And I speak of a foot and you show me your feet but I think of a boot, should the pair become beet? And we talk of a brother and also a brethren, but when we say mother, we never say methren.
