The English language is somewhat confusing at the best of times so I decided to write a short story to confuse you even more by using words that sound the same but have an entirely different meaning.
See how you get on, I'm sure that you will be able to make some sense of it.
Children's Story: by
Take two witches, now how do you know which witch is which.
Both witches live in a very big wood, at this point you maybe thinking do the witches live together in the wood or would they live alone, well they live alone in the wood, which, by the way is called Witch Wood.
One of the witches has a rather large nose; this witch makes lotions and potions to get rid of horrible warts and ugly spots.
The other witch has a rather smaller nose; she makes lotions and potions to get rid of nasty coughs and very bad colds, so everyone that meets the witches, knows by the nose which witch is witch.
Following so far?
This wood that the witches live in is right on the coast next to the sea, so from each witches house they can both see the sea.
The witch with the large nose, knows a thing or two about the sea, she collects seaweed and shell fish from the shore, being sure to collect the right seaweed and shell fish to take back to her house and boil them in her caldron to make her potions and lotions.
Children's Story: by
The other witch with the smaller nose, knows a thing or two about the wood, she collects plant leaves and creepy crawlies from the wood, she too would take them back to her house to boil them in her caldron, she always leaves the leaves and creepy crawlies to boil a little longer to get the recipe just right for her potions and lotions.
Each potion and lotion has a spell to go with it, the spell has to be read out loud whilst taking or applying the potion or lotion for it to work.
Children's Story: by
So each witch would write the right spell down making sure to spell the spell right, otherwise when read out the potion or lotion would not work.
The spell also had to be written in red ink, this also was a must, no other colour would do. The spell had to be read from red writing, otherwise the potion or lotion would again not work.
People would come to the wood from miles around to buy the lotions and potions from the witches. Which witch they went to see was all down to which ailment they had and which lotion or potion would be suitable from which witch.
Now I am led to believe that the two witches still live in the wood making their lotions and potions and everyone that has met them still knows that the witch with the rather large nose, knows all about horrible warts and ugly spots and that the witch with the rather smaller nose, knows all about nasty coughs and very bad colds.
Which helps to know, you know, which witch is which?
Children's Story: by
So there you have it, I do hope that this short story will help you get a grip on the somewhat confusing English language, and not confused you anymore than you may already be!
