      Thanks! I’ve added malarkey and whiskey, I think I left them out because almost nobody uses the word “malarkey” here in Australia, and because it’s a list mainly for use with kids I wasn’t inclined to include alcohol words, but I guess they appear in books. The other three words all have unusual spellings (the or in attorney is pronounced “er” in Australia, same for the our in journey and the combination Greek y plus ss is highly unusual so I decided to leave it off this list, since someone learning “ey” as in chimney is probably not ready to learn that yet.
