"I still remember when, as a child, I realised that the river Tems that I'd heard about and the river Thames that I'd read about were the same waterway. Clang."
I didn't realize until I was 11 that "suttle" and "subtle" were the same word. In my mind they had sliightly different meanings because of their different usage patterns in speech and text.
