The hood is the bonnet; the trunk is the boot. So is the VW Bug engine under the boot?
The biggest situation in the Riviera group is trying to convince people that that thing under the hood that runs on fuel is an engine, NOT a motor. Engines run on fuel; motors run on electricity. And they call themselves "car guys."
My British sports cars had "Bonnets", not hoods, hoods are sections of some cities, correct?....or what is attached to my Parkas...or what is attached to the wall above the stove in the kitchen,..... but I'm confused again, is it a stove, or a range? Or is a range where I go for target practice.....Excuse me while go scratch my head and think for a while....one more thing, is it a Bike, a Bicycle, or a Velo?......hummmmmmm
As long as we're making U-turns while driving in the wrong lane going the wrong direction on a one-way street. Try this one on. Seven different ways that words containing the tetragraph 'ough' are pronounced. Each of the following words has a different pronunciation for ough. Do you know each of the seven?
These are words used in common American English and do not include words used in British, Scottish, Australian, and New Zealand English. Most of those words are names of places so they don't count unless you live there.
Now you know why people immigrating to America find it difficult to learn English. Basically the only rule is 'There are no rules when it comes to pronunciation.'
