Subject: silent letters
Question: What language has the most silent letters? Additionally, I have read, online, many reasons for the evolution of silent letters. The answers, however, don't appear to be based on research and instead seem to be opinion. Can you refer me to the best research on this subject. Mahalo, Jeff
