Hi Friends,

SOMETHING VERY INTERESTING

Letters ‘a’, ‘b’, ‘c’ ‘d’ do not appear anywhere in the spellings of 1 to 99, (Letter ‘d’ comes for the first time in Hundred)

Letters ‘a’, ‘b’ ‘c’ do not appear anywhere in the spellings of 1 to 999, (Letter ‘a’ comes for the first time in Thousand)

Letters ‘b’ ‘c’ do not appear anywhere in the spellings of 1 to 999,999,999, (Letter ‘b’ comes for the first time in Billion)

Letter ‘c’ does not appear anywhere in the spellings of entire English Counting

Just Try……… ……… ……… except
C ..for….CASH !!

In any pronouncement the word “Q” will never come alone,and it always comes along with “U” eg., Question,Queue,Queen,Quality etc.

Vowel = a e i o u

sky,why,fry,wry,my,thy,fly,try – are very few words in english, “word without vowels”

but all the words having the letter “y” bcz in ancient english “Y” was also considered as a vowel letter, but later on they removed “y” from vowel letter list, as the sound of Y satisfied by with the sound of other vowel letter “A” & “I”.

the only big word in english without vowel is “nymph” ( do u know the meaning ?,
“A very beautiful young women”

education,telecommunication,ejaculation,
are the few words in english -single word having all the 5 vowel letters.

a,i & eau – these are three words only in english which the whole word containing only vowel letters.

(eau = means this word derived from french which means “water content” u can find this word in all perfume bottles)

The biggest and the most lengthiest word in english is “floccipaucinihiliphilipication” total 30 letter which means “worthless”

HOMOPHONE = In English a word pronounced the same as another word but has the different meaning and different spelling is called as homophones eg., son – sun, right – write, Sight – site, etc,

Last but not least: In TAMIL LANGUAGE the name of the small boat is “KATTUMARAM” but in english also it is same ” catamaran” u have doubt…pls check woth the following link,http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catamaran

( the historic background for this name is,when british people came to south Indiadia partucularly the area where TAMIL people we lived. they see this boat and ask the fisher man what is this ? he replied “kattumaram” , then the english man pronounce it in his own british slang . – same like Kangaroo in
Australia)

Sharing knowledge is also a kind of charity –

have a nice weekend
