Thread Name: How to pronounce 'plaidie'
Subject: RE: How to pronounce 'plaidie'
I remember our modern studies teacher doing an experiment with the word "Rare". Asking each student to pronounce it then marking our spot on the map. There was a remarkable change in the word from one end of our school zone to the other.
Approximate distance.... about 7 or 8 miles.
Much like the Macpherson thread, this one will be all over the map.
My pronunciation for ""Plaidie" would be half way between ay & eh.
