{jcomments on}Pronunciation in English is always a bone of contention. A non-phonetic or semi-phonetic spelling convention makes the actual pronunciation even harder. So, here is a poem testing your English pronunciation skills. Just check if you can pronounce each of the words and give special attention to the spelling convention for each. If you can do this, you have a good understanding of English! Try this out once. The poem aptly titled as "The Chaos" is written by Gerard Nolst Trenité in 1922.

Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
