Ditto FletcherB.. although you are beating me, I've heard of a few but not met even one! We are a rare breed.
But pleased to meet you!
I'm SO glad Graeme you mentioned the hair/hare/here teaching from school, I thought I'd dreamed it.
I got mocked no end in England for explaining how the teacher told us they were pronounced exactly the same way but spelt differently.. homophones is it.
Mind you the people mocking me drove VW Poul-lows and drank diet Couca-coula.. (bit difficult to spell middle-class English phonetically!)
Although I can't seem to shake saying 'may I borrow your pan' instead of 'chuck us your pEEn'
Wondering what differentiates the Documentary Channel from other offerings such as Animal Planet, Discovery, History Channel?
