I wouldn't say it was frustrating...

Not quite that frustrating...try reading something in French, there are silent letters all over the place there.

lol. silent is complete absence of sound, you cannot be just KIND OF broke or a glass KIND OF empty; it either is or it isn't.

hearing sound and pronunciation sound? rat and rate sound completely different because of the same exact e rule/sound as in "ile", that's all.

More interesting than frustrating haha

Well.. The e is almost always silent when it's at the end.
It's just the s that is a little annoying..

1 Letter is most?

@1 Letter is most?

Ile?@689230 (Anonymous): Aisle- A is silent, S is silent, and E is sorta silent. It's not pronounced but it alters the pronunciation of the other 2 letters.
