You get confused!!!!!!!! I'm English and dont understand all of the language.

You wear clothes, but ask someone where they have been.
If your deaf you cant hear, but ask someone to come over here.
we sit in our cars, but ask are you ok.
They watch TV in their house, but walk over there.

And so it goes on, one reminder used for spelling is i before e except after c but when you look at the correctly spelt word their, e is before i.

Confusing, no never.!!!!!!!!

whats the problem?
they're pretty clear in their meanings over there
and it's i before e except after c and unless it sounds like a, as in neighbor and weigh.... it's an ancient rule with no fallacies.. what ?are you foreign or something?
no confusion here..

But in the word "their", the ei is sounded with a short e sound, not a long a sound, so it still doesnt fit the rules!!!!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghoti <- see that, then always spell the word "fish" like this: ghoti!
