The English Language

From the ivman:

The following could really make you say “Hmmm…”

If GH can stand for P as in Hiccough,
And if OUGH stands for O as in Dough,
And if PHTH stands for T as in Phthisis,
And if EIGH stands for A as in Neighbor,
And if TTE stands for T as in Gazette,
And if EAU stands for O as in Plateau,
Then an alternative spelling of POTATO could be GHOUGHPHTHEIGHTTEEAU,
right?
