Thread Name: 'Singing 'Shenandoah' for Brits
Subject: RE: 'Singing 'Shenandoah' for Brits
The whole thread is a bit of a waste of time anyway. Telling a whole nation's folk community how to pronounce a place name is a bit like spitting in the wind. It is unlikely to have any impact and does nothing more than advertise one's own irritation over something you can't really change. Hence no I wouldn't say "Edinburrow" but the fact remains that lots of American tourists who come here do say that! What would the point be of going on-line and lecturing them?
