It Can Be Confusing (Old Post)

I love the English language… after all, it is my native tongue… but I have to admit that it can be confusing!

We have:

hither
thither
whither

hence
thence
whence

here
there
where

So why not:

hen
then
when?

Perhaps we could do a word switch, and call a female chicken a now from hen on!
