Did you know what jirble means? Yes, jirble is a word, and it very specifically means to spill a liquid while pouring it due to your hands trembling. Or how about the fact that 11% of the entire English language is just the letter ‘e’. Or if you wrote out every number as a word, one, two, three, and so on, that you wouldn’t use the letter ‘b’ until you hit a billion.
