    DH is always telling the children
    a-nough.

    It's enough, e-nough.

    What about Aldi? Is it all-dee, or al-dee?

    And what about hummus? Is it hoo-mus or hom-mus, or something else?

    I always flick between these ones as I'm unsure.

    My Dh says pun-kin, instead of pumpkin. And Ung-yin, instead of Onion...so annoying, and now the kids are starting to do it too!

    I spent a few years in North QLD as a kid, but was born and otherwise raised in WA..people tell me I say pool/school/cool weird, but I just can't hear it!! I'm sitting here saying them out loud to myself..and they just sound normal! LOL (Thank-god everyone is in bed, no doubt I sound like a moron!)

    is Beer

    b- ear (as in your actual ear) this is how I say it but have noticed some people pronouce it differently and the closest way to explain it is

    b - err or b- are

    My brother in law thinks the b- ear is a WA thing?

    The rule is if it was just you (no Hannah), would you say 'me" or "I"? You would say "me" so it's "Hannah and me".

    But it's "Hannah and I are going to the beach" because if Hannah wasn't coming it would be "I'm going to the beach" - not "me going to the beach"

    I don't know if that makes sense. It's 4am.

    A Nikko is a permanent marker. A Nikko is a brand of permanent marker. In qld we refer to all permanent markers as nikko's.

    It's pronounced to rhyme with ear or dear. Any other accent on it would probably be a result of dialect - e.g., more of an rrr sound on the end.

    Weird. It reminds me of Pulp Fiction, when Vincent asks for a "magic marker" & she's like "what?" & he's like "a felt tip pen"... imagine an Australian remake... lol
