Oggie, thanks for posting the pronunciations. It's nice to know where at least some of them come from. 'Partener' occurs in the States as well. And of course some southerners are teased because they say be-ans, etc. All just about disappeared, however.

Barney? I still can sing a line or two of Barney Google. Is there another?
