Because it originally came from the marshmallow plant back in ancient Egypt...pronunciations change a lot over time I guess.
why don't we pronounce the 'k' in words like 'knife' or 'know'? why are there three different spellings and meanings that have the same sound? (two, too, to)
welcome to the english language :p
and there isn't just one english language either. there's american english, english english (uk/europe), and those wacky aussies seem to have their own version of it as well.
Its easier than Cantonese - lol
It isn't marshmellow because after eating a lot of them you aren't mellow; you are hyper from the sugar.....
Hmm well that is a good way of looking at it too. Either way I don't care because they are delicious. :P
Yep.. I like to take a couple of them and start to mash them up, like you would with dough. They get all sticky like taffy; so good. Only problem is your hands get sticky.
Haha, nothing wrong with that. I like the mini ones and like to throw them up and catch them in my mouth.
Ah okay. And yeah, it takes some practice to get good at it. When I was younger I used to choke all the time. The other day I had some of the larger ones and my brother wanted me to throw one across the room to him so he could catch it in his mouth. I threw it right into his mouth, he didn't even have to move; it was pretty awesome. :P
My point is that the English language is crazy. Those examples are basically the same letters but are pronounced vastly different.
i have no idea, but that's a great point u just pointed out. :) i never thought of that.
well, that was a really good question u gave out. i'm proud of you. :)
ur welcome. ;)
Because we are ALLOWed to eat them
because everyone pronounces it incorrectly...go watch sandlot and you'll see what i mean
