Otherwise a great quiz
The vowel sound in "hairy" is NOT pronounce like a short e, but as the combination of ai. (air, care, stair, pair) Phonetically, it would be HARE-ee.
The vowel sounds in "deck" and "care" are not the same. Neither are the vowel sounds in "very" and "hairy".
And lemme tell ya, my last name is Vary with a long "a", so ever since elementary school I have been made excruciatingly familiar with this extremely specific matter of rhyming and pronunciation.
Tamil is pronounced more as TAM - eel (as in the fish)
While camel is CaM - ill.
They don't rhyme
but that didn't stop me from trying 'truffle shuffle'
