Grammarant for Jan 19

Back in December, I posted a list of words that have something in common. No one has guessed. I presume you’re all dealing with putting up, then taking down, your Christmas decorations.

So here it is; what if I told you that all those words rhyme?

Makes no sense, you say? Well, take a look at the past tenses of them:

bought

caught

sought

thought

fought

taught

brought

Now that you’ve seen the answer, how many of you knew it, but were just too timid to raise your hand?
