Abstract
Beginning with the relationship between human languages and human thoughts, this paper expounds firstly on the logicality of human thoughts and human languages. Since human thoughts share common logic characteristics and, human languages reflect those thoughts, languages usually have some common logic characteristics as well. Then it elaborates upon the large variety of illogical phenomena existing in three aspects of the English language——the rules of pronunciation, the words’ formation, and the syntactic meanings. At last, it analyzes the causes of these illogical phenomena and the enlightenments they bring to us——although they increase the difficulty of English learning, they enrich the English language as well thus, making the English language more colorful and intriguing.
