These are extremely rule based and their appearance is total and complete, varying by register and dialect. I could go on further, but this concludes my defense of English consonants and the cherry picking of irregularities of English orthography in this thread.

But we certainly want to do everything that we can to make sure that we have a natural grass surface..
