Re: where worcestershire souce gone?

Quote:
Incredibly detailed pronunciation guide, but wrong, IMO, on two counts. Firstly, she's completely failed to recognise that the name of the sauce is generally pronounced without the 'shire' part at all, which is a common mistake.

More subtly, I feel that she's getting the first syllable wrong. She's not rounding the mouth at all, so the U is too open, it needs to move more towards the 'oo' sound. She's saying it almost like thirst, it needs to be more like thrust.
Haha it's close enough for our American friends, I give her A+ for effort.
