    Default Words ending in -ough

    La terminación -ough es todo un engorro para aquellos que quieren estudiar inglés. ¿La razón? Porque tiene nada menos que 9 pronunciaciones diferentes.

    Sé que "of" es una, como en "enough", no conozco las otras.

    I can only think of 8

    ó... as in Dough...dó
    uhf... as in Enough...ynuhf
    u...as in Through...thru
    awf...as in Trough...trawf
    au...as in Bough...bau
    af...as in Laugh...laf
    ahk...as in Lough...lahk
    up...as in Hiccough...jicup

    Anybody know what the 9th would be??

    Some of the "ough" words are old English and are rarely seen except in poetry/prose. Some have become phonetic...like hiccough=hiccup and lough=loch (as in Loch Ness Monster)

    Esta frase contiene las nueve:
    ‘A rough-coated, dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed.’

    inesp...yo veo solo 6 pronunciaciones diferentes....creo que tres tienen la misma pronunciación asi como otras en la frase. ¿Que opinas tu?

    A rough-coated, dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed

    1. rough...úhf
    2. dough...ó,
    thoughtful...(bueno...does not end in ough pero seria igual que cough. Thawt, cawf)
    3. plough...au
    4. through...ú (thru)
    Scarborough...(igual que dough...ó... Scarboró)
    slough...ú (slu...igual que through...thru)
    5 cough...awf
    6. hiccough...úp

    Mira, la frase no tiene palabras de "af" como laugh, ni "ahk" como lough.

    Todavia no se que seria #9. Pero bueno, es cierto que words ending in ough tienen bastante pronunciaciones diferentes
