Here's one close to home folks...... A little history first.
Boomer grew up in the New England states (Connecticut to be specific) and a few years back he had a guest on his show that lead a group in relaxation. It was called Laughter Yoga. I was listen to him on the radio and he announced that this lady he had on his Program today teaches.......
Wait for it.....
Wait for it.....
Lafta Yoger.
Needless to say I was LOFLMAO.
OR....
when he said he used to wear a parker when he lived in Connecticut...
I said, "you wore what?"
A parker he replied.
I finally figured out he was talking about a Parka, as I new it. So I have to live with strange words at our home front and do not have to go anywhere. But it is wonderful to have them pop up now and then to get a good giggle.:)
Sorry I outed you Boomer....Love you!
does that "love you" at the end get you out of trouble??? LMAO!!!

<quoted text>how do they pronounce those words? I don't often hear them mispronounced in Canada ...
Seriously? I think Webster's would say "LIE BRAR EEE (long e); and similar for NUKE LEE ER. There's no 'x' in ask.

My degree is in English :-)

That is how people here say those words.... I did see the discusions of Nuclear pronounciations .. but how else do people say Library?

I've only heard Lie Berry.

And it is not Twenty Thirteen it's Two Thousand Thirteen. This, 0, is a zero, a number; this, "O" is an o, a letter. In phone numbers and addresses people inevitably say the letter in place of the number. 000000000. It's a ZERO people not an ooooooooo!

Brighteyes, don't you remember our email when she (Flower Child/FC) says she made her hotel reservations & I picked Ft Wayne because she was flying in?
Don't know where the communication broke down. I was always of the understanding we were hooking up in Ft Wayne.
I do not understand where it broke down either. We knew that FC had reservations in Ft. Wayne because we asked where she as staying and the price. Boomer and I were talking about Muncie as a place to stay for the night. Our calendar says Ft. Wayne.

Hmm yes lie berry ... I've heard that,.. but only from Americans ... it's not done here ...

weird huh?

The "oh" makes sense though, it's so much easier to say instead of zero .... I mean to say "triple oh" instead of "zero zero zero" .. so much easier ....

Some tend to say it as "libry" rather than library.

Then you're gonna get stuck or the wrong number because a zero is not an "oh".

Adding my good wishes to those
of your for 'Flower Child.'
and happy Sunday to you B, and to all here.

Yes it's funny about language,
and the differences there are;

how the English prefer not to sound
the 'R' at the end of a sentence..
where Americans sound it strongly...

Over here too, we have our idiosyncrasies!

we put 'but' at the end of a sentence,
for no particular reason 'I can see'.. lol

ie>

'I bought a nice bunch of flowers,
though they were very dear, but'!!!
