  •  Worse for me… (1+ / 0-)

    I have an aunt and three cousins with the last name Derby (the uncle died years ago). I've been subjected to "Durby" literally since birth.

    The good thing for me is the dip in the British cultural pool has enabled me to easily articulate a word that is excruciatingly difficult for American speakers: Worcestershire.

    One can hear perhaps a dozen butchered variants (attempted) of it, but with a little knowledge, "Wooster-shur" becomes extraordinarily easy.

    I'm glad this is your thread we're jacking…

      I am just the facilitator, here......

      I'm working as fast as I can...for many reasons!
