GUEST,Phil d'Conch Away Rio: pronunciation (37) RE: Away Rio: pronunciation 26 Jul 21


When I first arrived in Houston, TX, I learnt my street name as "Bear Boulevard" and pronounced it accordingly. I was not corrected even once in the weeks that followed.

When I got my first mail in the post I found I actually lived on Bay Area Blvd.

Tejano, Texican, Tex-Mex is sorta, kinda Spanish but it's a long ways from the old country. Rio de Janerio = Ree-AH day Jan-AIR-err.

ie: North Dakoter, Toyoter.

Also: Ree-AH is a "bay area" but that's horse of a different colour.
