How do YOU pronounce Botanical?
    #6639507 - 03/05/07 11:03 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Bought-nickle?

or

Boh-Tan-ickle?

I find myself using the first, as silly as it may sound.

Yeah the first ignores the 'A'. I usually say it quickly like: Eth-no-bought-nickle.

According to you, Botany should be pronounced Bow-Tanny, while many people pronounce it Bought Anny.
