HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE THESE FOODS?

August 1, 2018


Are there any words you pronounce differently than other people,?

Maybe because of where you grew up, or how your parents said them?  But, someone took a bunch of FOOD words people say differently, and did a poll to find out who's in the majority:


1.  Do you say PEE-can . . . or peh-CAHN?  62% say peh-CAHN.

2.  Is it CAR-mull . . . or CARE-uh-mel?   57% say it CARE-uh-mel.

3.  MAN-aise . . . or MAY-oh-naise?   It's close, but 52% say MAN-aise.

4.  ALL-mund . . . or AH-mund?  79% DO pronounce the "L."

5.  Milk . . . or MELK?   Only 8% say it like there's an "E" in there.

6.  OR-ange . . . or AHR-ange?   89% say OR-ange.

7.  APP-ricot . . . or APE-ricot?   64% say APP-ricot.

8.  BAY-gle . . . or BAGGLE.  (???)   95% of people say BAY-gle.  (But yes, "baggle" is a thing.)


How did you do?  Are you in the majority?
