Question 28: The Idiocy of English Spelling

In the middle of last night, this question gave me grave concern
and the answer to my pondering, I would gladly learn.

Why do we spell Uncle and Ankle differently?

The last syllables of each word sound the same but we changed a letter – where is the logic in that!

Are there other words that make you wonder why?
