Now, LH, is Rapaire not a North American? USAian, even?
Should we be expected to know weird pronounciations of names that have no bearing on the spelling of said name according to USA English? (Well actually, perhaps Amos should. He is originally from the Northeast USA, possibly New England, though I don't recall.) All I know is I never understood why my late mother-in-law from a town in Massachusetts spelled Worcester, should insist it is pronounced Wooster. Sounded suspiciously "across the pond" to me.
Seems to me the boy is simply putting on airs. Not surprising, really, when you consider how he tears around Polkadotio, Idaho in a waistcoat of claret velvet, lace cravat, high boots, and tricorne hat with a rapier dangling from his belt.
Of course, you are merely a Canuck. What do you know?
