My husband says "al OOOO min EE um" but of course he was born in England and reserves the right to speak English whenever he chooses.

About GTs--we just had one in Indianapolis and one of the most widely travelled Fodorites in our group said "FOH-doors" and you know what? None of us batted an eyelash.

Which leads me to think, it's not about the pronunciation...it's about where you travel.

More importantly, how do you pronounce "nuclear?"

Frankly, I was glad to see this question and the answer. I have always pronounced Fodors "F + odors". However, I have a good friend that says Pho-doors. So I have always wondered who was right - and had hoped I wasn't saying it wrong all the time.

Can you explain the difference you are suggesting in PH vs F sounds?

I mean no disrespect to the white house or any other house but perhaps...just maybe.....the pronunciation is.......nuke---you---laur----a bush....meaning no disrespect, but that is the way our leader says it.....nuclear!
