This word is pronounced 'fish' through manipulation of atypical linguistic rules.
It uses the gh from laugh, the o from women and the ti from nation.
Ghoti is a bastard word that only has application in written context, and is primarily used by people trying to be smartasses.
ghoti is what you write down to confuse someone. Pronounced 'fish', it utilises the 'gh' from 'cough', the 'o' from 'women' and the 'ti' from 'action' to become a confusing little bugger. If you are writing to a posh person, be sure to start a conversation about fish, and say 'ghoti' several times. It means fish, too.
The ghoti you sell is weird
and unhygenic! That ghoti made me sick twice. I hate your ghoti!
The correct spelling of the word 'fish'
You take the 'gh' in trough
the 'o' in women
and the 'ti' in action
You can give a man ghoti and feed him for the day, or teach a man to ghoti and he will eat for the rest of his life.
I'm gonna go chomp on my ghoti....mmm tasty
