I agree that the English language has more weird and inconsistent pronunciations than any of the other 5 languages I learnt. The question is why did it become the world language (the French probably still disagree until the last man stands :). I still don't know. I have a conspiracy theory that these deliberate mis-pronunciations started with William Shakespeare because he didn't want to be associated with either vegetables or cuddly animals (only the stuffed ones).
