Aha, now I know it isn’t a quirk particular to my husband! And, I agree, English is a convoluted language. I admire anyone who learns it as a second or third language. Riles me when people criticize immigrants who haven’t mastered the language or who choose to rarely use it in their own families and communities. Usually, said people only speak English and have never attempted another language — most of which would be easier than English!
