Post by schuette » Sun Sep 03, 2006 11:34 am

I've been saying the word all night...Glasgow that is....and it's not so much Glaz-go and Glas-go
glass-go is too hissy...

Edinburgh...I pronounce Edin-burru....as in rhyming with thorough

Sillbury - Sill-bree

Avebury- Ave-bree

schedule- shed-jewel

We have some names people don't know the right way to pronounce here too, like Sequim (S-kwim), Seiku (See-que) and Puyallup (Pew-al-up) to name a few.
