comment Different ways to pronounce “augh”
@psmears, you're right about bough, which I've corrected above. However, I believe that there are at least three different ways that Slough can be pronounced: [slu], [slʌf], and [slaʊ], depending on what you're referring to. To avoid that issue, I've removed it brough the list above.
