You know what’s strange: despite spending something like 11 years taking near daily English classes throughout my childhood I don’t remember anyone mentioning that English does in fact have words that have accents. It’s like some form of collective amnesia, some quirk of the language we all use everyday that nobody talks about. What are the rules for the vowels? Why are they there? Why some words and not others?
