Hi there,

probably for more than couple of months can't find worchestershire souce in the shops. In every shop I checked only price tag left and empty shelf In France - the same. What happened?

Normally Leicester Square is the one that catches many tourists.

Not to mention Greenwich, Dulwich, Chiswick, Grosvenor, Holborn, Marylebone, Plaistow, Ruislip and of course Southwark

I thought there was a slight R sound, Wurster.

And when talking about the sauce, the ‘shire’ is always silent.

Re: where worcestershire souce gone?

I'm not aware of an 'r' sound in "wuster". Perhaps west-country dialect?

As the only authority I know of on this thread born in Worcestershire, yes.

Re: where worcestershire souce gone?

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.

My father always regaled us with how countless German spies were unmasked (and naturally executed later) after failing this crucial test during WWII by the cunning Brits!

It depends how you pronounce "wuster" like if you pronounce it like "muster".



Whoos-ster as in if you don't like it you're a whoos.


Stuff like this I deliberately mis-pronounce e.g. war-sesster-shy-re as I find it amusing when work colleagues then think that's correct.


I've never heard an American say it with "chester" instead of "sester"


Also many brits might infact e.g. say Manche-ster quickly i.e. two syllables not three.
