    Thinking of Warwick (Warrick), I have a question. An American friend of mine is a big Premier League fan and when we used to watch games together he referred to Norwich City as "NORE-witch." I thought something more like "Norrich". It's a little late for me to be asking as we broke up a few years ago and I think Norwich City was relegated and hasn't come back yet, but I was just reading this post over and got curious again so thought I'd ask.

    As a general rule we pronounce as quick and omit as many letters as possible, try this place name, Bicester, it took me a while

    I can pronounce it (I had a Welsh friend years ago and he was helping me learn) but I can't remember the whole meaning. St Mary's Well by the white pool ..... ?

    Americans have our own strange names for places, not so much spelling as pronunciation. People from other places (even other regions in this country) can't always pronounce Arab, Cairo, and the famous one in this region, Lafayette.

    But we do have trouble pronouncing Willamette, Puyallup, and La Jolla.

    I live in Sint Annaparochie, a small town close to the village Sexbierum, does that count? (and yes, bier is beer in Dutch)

    Is Sint Annaparochie like Saint Anna/Anne parish/parochial?

    I do like the name of the village. It sounds like the perfect recipe for a celebratory weekend. ;)

    I try to celebrate waking up every morning, getting up, and feeling like doing things (even the days I think I want to stay in, in my pajamas, I usually end up getting dressed and going out). As long as I feel like flying to the Netherlands and celebrating, that is cause in itself for celebration. :)

    BTW, don't tell anyone* but I bought some "Dutch Rusks" (what it said on the package) the other day. Lovely crunchy rounds of toast, perfect with peanut butter and coffee. The package says "Product of Holland." I know there's a difference, but which is "correct"? Holland, or the Netherlands? Or is it anything like "US" and "America"?

    *Don't tell anyone, because I shouldn't be eating rusks or toast. But these are fairly low-carb.

    LOL people in my part of the US don't like to be called yanks. Those are from up North. This is the South. ;)

    The city in Missouri is pronounced as if spelled St Lewis, but maybe the cathedral in New Orleans is pronounced in the French way.

    But then you've got to figure in the fact that people in Missouri don't all pronounce their state's name the same way, just like the people of New Orleans and elsewhere in Louisiana. :)

    But then you have Cirencester. Which I have heard pronounced Srinster (shock horror!). But it's as it's spelt. And don't get me started on Cholmondeley Featherstonehaugh. Oh, and you can have rusks or toast, @SaskiaKC! If they don't spike you or are low-carb, go for it - I now have a piece of Tesco high protein for eggy soldiers with my Sunday boiled egg, with no problems. :)

    Love this really now completely off-subject thread! - it's so great to read posts with interesting facts and insights from all over the world :happy:
