Why isn’t a cement factory called a cemetery? I hate the English language, absolutely despise it.

    That would normally be called a cement plant. 
    Why does it bother you? Most factories/plants do not have their product as part of their name. 
    No autoreries (auto factory/plant), or leatheries (leather factory/plant). 

    We do have creameries, and bakeries. Pizzerias.

    I don't see any connection between making cement shoes and a place to bury people

    OMG!  That's like me saying I don't like...well, you know.  Oh nevermind.
    I'm gonna do a print screen of your question and comment.  I may need it in the future.

    A cementary, maybe. But cemetery has nothing to do with cement.

    Why isn't it called a  cementary?  I'm sure everyone else caught this major glitch in your chief premise.

    Randy since you hate English

    Was sagen Sie?  Cement is nür ein  Englisch Wört.  Hier est ist Zement........  Hier est is nicht cemetery, es ist ein Friedhof.  Es ist so einfach.

    Randy is this not better
