English is illogical Captain
From Answers.com

Hole: n. A hollowed place in something solid; a cavity or pit

Holey: adj. Having holes or full of holes.

Whole: n. A number, group, set, or thing lacking no part or element; a complete thing.

Wholly: adv. Completely; entirely.


Surely wholly should be spelled wholey... as in of the whole? The double L should make the pronounciation the same as holly:

1 L: pronounced holy
2 Ls: pronouced holly

It's small wonder I can't spell for shit!
