Damn. That sounds like something I'd post.

That would be me. I made cold slaw and went to add more salt. Well the little sprinkler top stayed in the damn top, so I got a bunch of salt in my slaw. Hello trash can.

Couldn't you wash it and start over with the washed cabbage?

I'm pretty sure he got a little more than a slap on the wrist, but not much. His lawyer argued he had no idea the ducklings were there

A woman yesterday was blethering on about all the places she'd visited, including Blenheim Palace. Which she called Blenn-hime.

Now I have nothing against people not getting place names right on reading them. English-English is generally tricky, thanks to its mongrel history, and never more so than in place names. But she said she had been there. At what point did she not pick up on the fact that it's pronounced Blennim?

So she was either a lying idiot, or an idiot who doesn't bother listening to anything but her own yap.
Having suffered enough of it, I vote both.

Regular old spelling/pronunciation rules would have had me, along with the vast majority of the non-British world, pronouncing it blen-hime. That's what it looks like, and as you say, if I haven't been there, how am I to know people have been eliding it into blennum for a thousand years...

But, then, you have George Carlin talking about the way things are spelled vs. the way a group/person wishes them to be pronounced:

Quote:
You can spell your name S-M-I-T-H, and pronounce it Jonofski if you want to.

What's your last name?

Jonofski.

Spell it.

S-M-I-T-H.

What?

Nevermind. They're all silent.

Eliding! I was trying to think of that word (elided, rather than eliding)a few weeks ago and couldn't. I'd forgotten about it til I read your post.

Thankyou!

Now, see, you're making me learn things as well.

As an afterward, Blenheim was fairly local to me, so I probably heard the name before I ever saw it written down.
And I reiterate I am not an insufferable snob who laughs at people who get names wrong. I've done it enough times - especially once I moved out of Bucks.
Try getting your head around Mytholmroyd for example - although it's reasonably logical in the end.

And don't even think about place names in Wales...

My second primary school was just off a street called Blenheim Terrace. That name got everywhere.
