Suggested wine pairing: merlot.
The real question is why we’re so okay with weirdly compressed pronunciations like cumfturble and wensday.
I used to agree completely, but eventually I accepted that that’s how language works.
After all, have you ever tried pronouncing all the phonemes in “Worcestershire”? It’s a fool’s errand.
Long story short, letters are bullshit.
i used to enjoy pronouncing all of worcestershire, now i merely pride myself on continuing to pronounce the ‘shire’ as britons increasingly pronounce worcestershire the same as worcester
I bet you could just say “Wershhh,” and the idea would still get across.
