To Monika …… and anybody else still Following his Post. I have a history of living in various parts of England, and the consistent term for Worcestershire Sauce is simply Worcester Sauce (pronounced Wuster Sorse). It always resulted in what I asked for, and was never questioned! 🙂
Correction: first line should read “this Post” (sorry Monika! 🙂
No worries, Colin. I try to catch typos and correct them when I do. 😉
Tail way! 🙂
Here in South Africa we abbreviate it to just ‘wister sauce’. The natural reaction to words that long beginning with W is to give up on English. Say W ‘V’ then talk like you are fluent in some other language. I don’t know why, but it makes life easier
HuMom heard a older couple at the store having fun with it for several minutes. She couldn’t help but lol 🐾💜🐾
Phonetically we say: Wuster – sher (as in the singer, Cher). There are even YouTube videos on how to say it. 🤣
That’s the way I say it. When I’m sober. LOL Why am I not surprised there are YouTube videos on it?! Too funny.
I still can’t get out “Dostoevsky.”
Right there with you. I can’t even spell it!
I thought I was the only one who has a problem with that sauce😸Pawkisses for a Happy Day🐾😙😻
It seems 99% of us have a problem. I sidestep the issue by asking for the Lea & Perrins. LOL
I don’t think it really matters how you pronounce it – everyone knows what you mean so you still get handed the right sauce. I use the same ploy as Easy – I refer to it as the Lea and Perrins. Just as easy to say that than anything else. :o)
As a parrot, pronunciation is important. SQUAAAAAAAAAAAWK-you have to say it correctly.
Good to know. I probably use too many a’s to say it correctly. 😁
Don’t they just have an emoji for that now?
You’d think they would.
we use the shortcut… gimme the miss perkins…
Bravo…so much easier to pronounce!
I may pronounce it wrong but use it well 😉
I’ve never been very good at saying that properly. It’s one of those words that makes everyone sound silly.
Mom was born in western Massachusetts and lived there for 37 years. She is a bit of a linguist and always struggled with the “preferred” pronunciation of the city of Worcester, but based on how she says that city’s name, we think we know how she pronounces Worcestershire, and it makes no sense:)
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
I never have been able to say that city’s name properly! 😆
Good one. I’m just glad I don’t live there.
I wonder if anyone even knows how we’re really supposed to say it anyway? 🙂
Good point. 😆
Next thing we know you will be igniting the ages old debate on ketchup vs catsup. Or pop, soda, coke.
And don’t get me started on color vs. colour and similar words.
I probably massacre it!
Welcome to the general population.
People who live in Boston are confident they are the only ones who pronounce everything correctly (that’s how I tease my son)!
Bwahaha. Now that’s too funny!
Oh, didn’t you know, dear da-Al, that Bostonians are always right, even when they are wrong?
You know, I’ve heard that said once or twice before 🤣
Years ago, it only took my son one semester to acquire the Bostonian attitude. He’s been living there for 30 years now, and the attitude got firmly entrenched. It is truly funny!
Not really, but then it’s not one of my priorities either. 😄
You just never know when you’ll need to say it. 🤣
No really, but I make lots of boo boos trying to pronounce certain words.
Have a fabulous day and week. ♥
Worcestershire is one of those ‘great equalizer’ kinds of words that puts everyone on par. 😊
I’m confident with “woostersher” until I see it spelled out.
Spell it? Awk…I can barely pronounce it, let along spell it! 🤣
I just call it “the good stuff”. LOL
Yup, that great tasting brown sauce. 😂Have a great Monday and an even better week.
Same to you Monika. 🙂
I’m sure I have confidently pronounced it wrong my entire life. I was raised in West Texas where the twang makes us mispronounce everything. I feel bad for those who have no such excuse! I’m just glad that I found the 303 29 years ago.
And the 303’s great gain! I don’t think anyone can pronounce it right which puts us all in the same boat.
I beg to disagree. Where would we be without these strange pronunciations?! 😉 Can you imagine what would happen if everyone were able to pronounce it correctly?! 😀
Btw, try this place name: Cirencester. The locals pronounce it as “sissitte”.
😳Holy cow! It’d be C-City in my lexicon.
when in doubt run it together quickly. I was raised by people from the deep south, imagine how they said it!
It’s one of those tongue twisties guaranteed to hijack any person’s intelligence.
Thanks for the Monday Morning Chuckle. Have a great day and week.
Thanks, you enjoy the week as well!
Good luck to the Broncos tonight.
Ha…they’re gonna need it. The have a long history of looking particularly bad on Monday night. Especially against the Raiders.
