The problem with English is the breadth of the language, the slow evolution and the changes in pronunciation over the last 1000 yrs.

As a point you cannot read the OED from cover to cover without accepting there are 29 real letters in the alphabet, you cannot make sense of English unless you accept that Y is a vowel some of the time.

Shewn is just one example of the evolution.
