I'd like to know why the word ROOF does not follow the plural rule for words ending in F or FE(which are changed to VES).
Thank you for your attention,
It's just one of those things. You see, other than structure, the English language lacks logical constructions. Roofs is just (one of) the exception to the rule. Same thing happens with pronunciation:
Why is the O in bomb pronounced differently from the one in tomb (toomb)? It's pretty much the same word...
