This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.
Most of the French I've met sneer at us to our faces if we can't pronounce their language(I will not go into the actual grammar here), while Americans like me(and I am not saying all Americans are like me) find it charming when the French can't pronounce our language. It goes without saying that they are much better in English than I could ever hope to be in French.
Thanks for putting this together; it's a topic I've been thinking about for some time, but never bothered to organize a post. My nominee for an exception is weird.
Lockwood, thanks for putting in weird. I thought I had it on my cut and paste list, but it got lost.Sometimes to remind myself, if there is an i before e but no c to be seen, I pronounce the words incorrectly as a reminder, so I say "face-ty" instead of "feisty" or "wared" instead of "weird".
