Thank you! I almost fell out of my chair laughing. Would have loved to
have had this when I was still teaching, but I will pass it on to friends
who are still involved in the grand task.

I used to have students compare the Our Father in Anglo-Saxon, Latin,
French, German, and English. I also used George Bernard Shaw's "ghoti".

You do know Bernard Shaw's story about "ghoti", I hope.
