I've peed or pead my pants and I can't get up!

Would love to read all the other pronounciation questions asked in previous inquiries!! Makes for good reading on an otherwise dull day at work.

I'm sure there are more - - these were from this year alone, by just text searching "pronunciation"!

Very, very cool, Musicteacher! Is that a site that maybe we should know about?

(I'm also pleased to hear that my pronunciation is virtually identical. Does NOT sound like the way I say "car" at all, to my ear.)

Hi all,

If you go to http://french.about.com/library/media/wavs/gare.wav

and

http://www.naturalvoices.att.com/demos/index.html

you will hear two slightly different ways to pronounce "gare".
