But I don't know - DH (who is Australian) refused to relinquish his strange pronunciation of things like 'data' and 'project' when he lived with me in England. (He said 'dahta' and 'pro-ject' instead of the English 'dayta' and 'prohject'.)
Funnily enough I had to use the word "project" and "data" a lot for work. I can't remember which way around it is for each country now.
(* That was 6.5 years of grey skies, constant drizzle, freezing rain, frosts, fog, flat caps, whippets, chips with gravy or curry sauce and mushy peas.)
Also, I used to live in Eyre Street (named after the explorer). His name is pronounced air, but I had many disagreements with the silly taxi drivers and locals because they would pronounce it eye-r.
I recall a specific time when I got in the taxi, said Eyre st (pronounced air) and the taxi driver asked if I meant eye-r st, no I meant air, no eye-r. We went back and forth for a while lol
