While he didn't invent the word "ghoti", Ernesto enjoyed how it pointed out the irregularities in the English language.

While living in Key West "Ghoti" were a frequent theme in Ernesto's sculpture and drawings.

The word "Ghoti" is an alternate spelling for an everyday word, sound it out..
  • "GH" as in enouGH
  • "O" as in the plural word wOmen
  • "TI" as in naTIon
