That would probably work anyways. I hear women love it when you play hard to get like that. Davidy22[talk] 13:38, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Is it not also relevant that the "ea" in heart and beat are pronounced differently, an example of the irregularity of English orthography. 126.96.36.199 (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)
- ...and also in learn, bread, break, beard, bear, create, reality, realize, sergeant. So, 11 different pronunciations. Did I miss any? ––St.nerol (talk) 22:11, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
- In what way are the pairs beat/beard and learn/bread pronounced differently? 188.8.131.52 21:18, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
- Beat/beard seems the same. Mistake. Learn has the same vowel as "surge", and bread is pronounced with the short "e"-sound, as in "best". –St.nerol (talk) 22:15, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
