      My favorite recent podcast is The History of the English podcast, and it's just amazing how much disconnect there is between spelling and pronunciation due to so many little changes through time. Crismis makes perfect sense, actually.

      Because there was a time when "light" was pronounced "lich-te" and "nightingale" was pronounced "nig-hickten-gae-la." :)
