13 Food Items You're Probably Pronouncing Wrong
Yes, there is a big revelation coming up to start this. Unfortunately, if you've been going to a BUF-AY then you've been saying it wrong. It's actually BOO-FAY, believe it or not. No, hell hasn't frozen over.
Not every word on this list begins with a B, I promise. But the key to this one is remembering that it's French, and once you've accepted that things will become easier. BOO-YAWN for this.
Look, people tend to get words beginning with B wrong, okay? And this fish is a particularly slippery one in the pronunciation stakes. BOOL-YUH-BAYZ is the right way to say this...
This is one that I've heard virtually everyone I know get wrong. It's very to just pronounce words how they're spelt, but in basically the same was as buffet, this one is HOO-MUS.
One of the most popular health foods in the world, South America's favourite nutritious snack is a bit of an odd one. It's actually KEEN-WA.
Another victim of this whole 'OO' craze, NOO-TELLA may include nuts in its ingredients, but it's not actually supposed to be in the name. Mind blown.
Although this is five years too late for the opening of Manchester Arndale's branch of Taco Bell, you should be ordering a CHIP-OH-TAY from now on.
Possibly a word that sees more different pronunciations than any in human existence, AH-SIGH-EE is that healthy berry you've just started having with your morning porridge.
This is one that people could disagree on all day. It's supposed to be AH-MUND, but I'm sure people will continue making up their own version up anyway!
You might like to cook this fine Italian dish, but have you been saying it properly? Contrary to popular belief, it's RIS-OT-O rather than RIZ-OT-O
Ah yes, the famous Dutch cheese. If you're a fan of Dutch footballers in particular, Ruud Gullit (HUL-IT) for example, you'll know about their penchant to replace a G with an H, but this gets even more complex. It's HOW-DA people. .
There's about a hundred different ways this could be said, but it turns out that it's ED-A-MA-MAY. That actually makes sense, doesn't?
This one is CWA-SON rather than CRUS-SAHNT. However, lets be honest. If you're not French and are saying it like that in Manchester, people are likely to think you're a bit of a dick, so it's not too surprising!
