re: Why isn't "phonetic" spelled the way it sounds?


are you implying that it should be spelled 'funnetick' or similarly? And thus implying that it is somehow ironic or amusing due to the words definition?

because i dont think that this is funny at all. hooked on phonics got me through 2nd - 5th grade. probably saved my life.
