*chuckles* I posted on the same topic in another thread right before I read this. Hopefully someone in the world has an answer, and hopefully I will find it someday.Caramel
Three syllables, right?
Care - A - Mel
Then why the (deleted) does everyone pronounce it "Carmel" (car-muhl)?
Some sickly wine commercial from the 80's plugging Mt Carmel wine?
Or does the media now pronounce it so ?
Tripping off my soap box now..........
I have to comment that pecan is one of those words that is pronounced differently depending on the region of the US where you hear it. I pronounce it "pee-can" because in south Georgia where I grew up and lived for 24 years, that is how it was said. In Indiana, people said pee-cahn. My friend in PA says it peck-an, emphasis on peck. Praline was always pronounced pray-leen where I grew up and I don't recall ever hearing it said prah-leen. Hearing it pronounced pe-cahn is annoying to me because it's foreign to my ears, same as prah-leen. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/lol.gifI'm going to change gears and go not with words themselves, but the pronunciation of them. Pecan is pronounced puh-con. Not pee-can. Praline is pronounced prah-leen. Not pray-leen. So when I hear someone on TV say "Pee-can pray-leen", I just want to hit something.
Yes, it's Barksheer or Barkshah!Ishbel, do you pronounce Berkshire, Bark-shire? I have always said Berk- shire
A friend of mine has recently had a few business meetings in London and that's what one of the English gentlemen had told him.
