The first try didn't work out well, resulting in a sauce that was extremely spicy, and their wives weren't huge fans of it. I have restricted myself to major English towns and cities because there simply isn’t enough space in one post to venture more widely, but do let me know if you’d like posts on the pronunciation of other major place names.I’ll turn now to some cities and counties with silent letters in their names. I like this interesting post!If you click on the links in the post they will take you to the Cambridge Dictionary entries. Alington, C. A. Thank you so much.
It has sweetness from molasses, it's acidic from vinegar and tamarind, and it's salty as a result of soy sauce and anchovies (via The sauce has been around for quite a while. ‘Westminster’ is pronounced the way it looks – just remember that the last syllable is a schwa (it’s the same as the last syllable in ‘teacher’).And I don’t understand the word “schwa”… You mean we have to pronunce “cher” from “teacher” for “ster” from “Westminster” ?It will be fun get an audio with the pronunciation to understand better. All rights reserved Even people with English as a first language are often unable to guess the pronunciation of an unfamiliar place. However, her credulity broke down when we had a go at telling her that Totnes and Widnes (both in fact pronounced as spelt) were pronounced as ‘Tones’ and ‘Wines’ …..Yes, that’s definitely one of the tricky ones! They then purchased the recipe from Lord Sandys and the results are available on most grocery store shelves today all over the world.
The time for aging had improved the flavor substantially. It would be very useful to know the correct pronunciation of these words. I wouldn’t even begin to write about Irish place names!I am Polish.I love English. Thanks for your usefull post, it leads us to investigate.Hi Liz, I´d like you to write a post on “vocal fry” and other new speech patterns in English. Like me, he is a purist ;))And I have to thank you, because you have learnt me a thing I didn’t know : I had never hear the word “vocal fry” ! Place names are amongst the hardest words in English to pronounce.
Adams, J. N. (1989) ‘ Medieval Latin and Carolingian reforms ’, Liverpool Classical Monthly 14. I believe he said the local folks say “LUFF-brruh”, but it’s been such a long time since I heard him say it. We all liked her, but she was a bit gullible about English place names, and we managed temporarily to convince her that Slough was pronounced ‘Sluff’. So I have examined that on Internet.Nevertheless, even us, French, use it sometimes, not on purpose, when we are thinking and saying “Er… ” (in French, it’s “euh…” ; we prononce like “er” but without the “r”)… And I don’t like.ROFL : thanksfully, your dog agrees with you !
Worcestershire (/ ˈ w ʊ s t ər ʃ ər / WUUS-tər-shər, /-ʃ ɪər /-sheer; written abbreviation: Worcs) is a non-metropolitan administrative, ceremonial and historic county, situated in the West Midlands region of England.. It was invented in India, according to David Burton, the author of In 1835, Sandys took the recipe to a chemist shop run by John Lea and William Perrins (those names may sound familiar) in Worcester. I kept asking drivers to take me to Dun Laoghaire as you would assume it’s pronounced. You are right, this is an error. I thought I well pronouced “London” because it’s easy, but that wasn’t exactly good.Well, I would like to see the pronouciation of “Westminster”, please… Because until now, I thought have a good pronouciation, but it’s a word more difficult than London, so… P.S : do you find my English correct ?
But, it is NOTHING compared to Irish place names.
Thank so much!This is what I have been looking for a long time till I came across with a website that enabled me of pronouncing different types of proper nouns.
I once took a ferry to Dun Laoghaire for a visit in Ireland which was pretty straightforward. He asked them to use his recipe to brew a batch of the sauce.

I would be grateful if you could give us your thought on the topic ;))I’m frivolously reminded of an Australian Geography teacher we had at my London grammar school in the 1960s.
Is that correct? My own pet hate is when people (especially politicians) start sentences with ‘Look … ‘ – it sounds so arrogant!Thank you both for your replies, Liz and IworshiptheLord!
