Like... zoid. But here, I think we call them trapeziums. Just saying Smile


Do you mean i-dee-a and i-dee-er? Then I do it the second way.

What do you call a deer with no eyes? No idea.

I say the word quite quickly so you don't really hear the ending much.

Tube. Tchube or tube?
I do the first one, but only a slight ch sound, not really really heavy.

Green

Hehe, so I was right. ad-ver-TIZE-ment is American. Ad-VER-tiss-ment is British English, I presume.


Left-tenant or loo-tenant (for lieutenant). Apparantly the British way is left-tenant, but I can't be bothered to pronounce that another way than how it's written. So loo-tenent for me.
