    Yes - 'shayse'. But the second part is 'long' rather than 'lounge' The word is 'chaise longue' (French, with a literal translation 'long chair').

    Was he English? That's the standard English pronunciation. I can't get used to 'yoe-gert' over here, although DD says it which is getting me there...

    Isn't that a British pronunciation? either way it's like fingers down a chalk board and up there with La-zonya

    We have a suburb called cockburn, I didn't realize it was pronounced Coburn and said it the way it's written until hubby pointed it out after the millionth time

    The only people I knew to say yog-urt were the English, along with pronouncing vitamin as vitta-min and peadophile as peeda-file.

    Grrr my own mother used to have a go at me all the time for that one. I'm such a stickler for grammar that it used to drive me nuts. She'd say "Should HAVE, not should OF" constantly.

    I DIDN'T SAY SHOULD OF, I SAID SHOULD'VE! Open your ears woman!!!
