    As we all know, 'ph' in English is normally pronounced 'f' but in three fairly common words it is not. What are those three words? These words are not hyphenated and are not names or tradenames.

    For the fourth word, again a fairly common word, which word contains 'wkw' consecutively?

    I think I might have got to the answer, in a rather haphazard sort of way...

    When I was a kid we played about with a grammatically correct sentence which included the word 'had' eleven times in succession....
     
  13. Yes!
