Draught

Who knew that "draught" is supposed to be pronounced "draft"??? I had no idea! I thought it was "drawt". My pastor heard me say it that way. He knows I like to use good grammar and proper pronounciation so he told me to look it up. I was so surprised. The "augh" in "draught" is pronounced "af" the same as it is in "laugh"!

He also says "err" is pronounced "ur". I looked that one up, too. My dictionary says either "ur" or "air" is proper for that one. I had never heard the "ur" pronounciation until I heard him say it.

Interesting! Ya learn something new every day!
