why did he claim this was created by rancy
我在做A Concise Course on Linguistics for Students of English的习题时,遇到一个题目: George Bernard Shaw, ridiculing the english spelling system, claimed that a possible spelling for fish could be ghoti, why did he claim this?

Replied by woodstock on topic RE:
I think he just meant that there was no reason why people chose the word FISH for the kind of thing as "fish", and if from the very beginning people chose a word like GHOTI rather than FISH,we would be using ghoti for fish. Understand?

Replied by rancy on topic RE:
Ghoti Spells Fish is a play on the absurdidties of the English langauge. It measn with enough imagination you can imagine Ghotti spels fish. Take the gh from enough, take the o from women and the ti from imagination.

G-H-O-T-I spells fish.
