Quote:Hi Stefan,That sounds very much like some of the prenunciations emanating from our Sat-Nav system. For example, even with my home town, (Wallingford), the "Wall" in Wallingford is pronounced, by the Sat-Nav's young lady, like the brick or stone variety rather than the more familiar sound of "Wall" as in the affectionate name for Walter. But travelling abroad is even funnier. My wife uses it when visiting relatives in Germany where the pronunciation of some roads and place names has her in stiches; not to say often confused ! Best regards,Tel
Astronomy compels us to look upwards and leads us from this world to another.
