SEVEN Interesting FACTS about ENGLISH:

1) Only two English words in current use end in “-gry”. They are “angry” and “hungry”
2) The word “bookkeeper” is the only English word with three consecutive double letters
3) The following sentence contains all 26 letters of the alphabet: “Quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”
4) A word formed by joining together parts of existing words is called a “blend”. Many new words enter the English language in this way. Examples are “brunch” (breakfast + lunch); “motel” (motorcar + hotel); and “guesstimate” (guess + estimate).
5) The shortest complete sentence in English is the following. “I am.”
6) The longest English word without a true vowel (a, e, i, o or u) is “rhythm”.
7) We can find 10 words in the 7-letter word “therein” without rearranging any of its letters: the, there, he, in, rein, her, here, ere, therein, herein…
