Hi, Anne - once upon a time, they named all hurricanes after girls (and I suppose you could pronounce that her-i-cane). In this day of equal rights, half of the storms are named for boys, and this one is named "Georges." Since this is a male storm, might it not be a him-i-cane?
Humor is the hardest part of a language to learn. I claim to be fluent in German. Wolfgang wants to keep me humble, so he sends me German jokes. I understand about half of them. Of course, I understand only about half of the American jokes I hear.
Maybe I should stick to Latin...
