With a lifelong hearing loss, you’ll know how tricky it is to get some words right. How will you know if you’re pronouncing a word correctly, if no one bothers to tell you, explain to you, or correct you? I have a childhood memory of saying GRAND PRIX …. just as it is written 🙂 and being made fun of whenever I said it. Eventually, I was informed it is pronounced GRAWHN PREE. Ohhhhh. Heh. How was *I* supposed to know?! Another one was PENELOPE …. which I pronounced PEN-E-LOAP … cue lots of laughter. Bless my lovely brother, he did tell me how to say this one properly.
The photo above is from my tasting session at Boudin’s (BOO-DAN’S) in San Francisco. It was scrummy!
So these articles really caught my interest. Knock yourself out!
