Here are some examples on how ‘ough’ is pronounced on different ways. There’s “cough” (which rhymes with “off”), “enough” (which rhymes with “stuff”), “dough” (which rhymes with “no”), “through” (which rhymes with “do”), “thought” (which sounds like “awe”), “plough” (an alternative spelling of “plow”), “hiccough” (an alternative spelling of “hiccup”), “hough” (an alternative spelling of “hock”), “lough” (an alternative spelling of “loch”), and “thorough” (which has a different pronunciation in the UK than it does in American English).

Why don’t you try this sentence: “A rough-coated, dough-faced, thoughtful ploughman strode through the streets of Scarborough; after falling into a slough, he coughed and hiccoughed.”
