Thread Name: BS: British vs. American names
Subject: RE: BS: British vs. American names
Noticed that Colin Powell has been mentioned in this thread as an example of the name "Colin" in America, But I for one was astonished when he first appeared on the international scene and the name was pronounced "cole-on" like the lower intestinal tract. Is that pronunciation common in the US, rather than the conventional "coll-in"?
