how do you say...?

After reading Dooce's entry (and the comments) I thought I'd share...

  • "crayon" I pronounce "cray-yawn"

  • "walk", "talk" and "chalk" have silent l's --> "wahk", "tahk",and "chahk"

  • "mirror" is "meer'r"

  • "kitten" is usually "kit'n"

  • "metal" and "medal" have very soft t's and d's; in fact, both words I say pretty much the same

  • "aunt" is "ant"

  • "pecan" is "pee-CAHN"
  • Current Music: Pet Shop Boys - "I'm With Stupid [Melnyk Heavy Petting Mix]"
