comment What is the oldest still-in-use English word?
@Thomas Carpenter: If you mean borrowed words as in words that originated in other languages, that's fine. If you mean borrowed as in "deja vu", then I'd prefer non-borrowed, but both would be okay. As mentioned in the edit, though, they should have clear links.

This is not technically a unique sound, but it is two unique behaviors with the same root spelling (and distinct k or s). Accepted.

I do not understand the difference between "watch" and "watsh" - if there is one, can you explain it?
