You've heard the story of the woman who got out of a parking ticket because the parking sign was missing a comma. How often would that really work? 

Pin it for later: http://bit.ly/1DD4kGX

Is it much ado about nothing?
Learn the difference between "ado" and "adieu," and whether the saying is "without further ado" or "without further adieu."

If Neal had delved into British English, he would've encountered several uses of the silent A, as in encyclopaedia and paedophile.

My mac seems to speak only American, but even there it found 1365 non-capitalized AE words, all the way from abscissae to zygaenid. (some have a silent A;some have a silent E.)
