    I've never understood why Americans (in particular) struggle so much with pronouncing place names like Worcestershire & Leicester. Any country that can understand the concept of silent letters in names like Connecticut shouldn't have any difficulties with those two.

    What's worse...mispronouncing a few city names, or driving on the wrong side of the road? Hmm...
    LOL!

    I quite agree - that's a ridiculous thing to do. But we forgive you for that, it's not your fault.

    You think Worcestershire & Leicester are mispronounced? Illinois is renowned for mispronouncing names of towns:

    Marseilles= Marsales
    Bourbonnais= Brabonis (news stations have recently begun pronouncing this one properly)
    Cairo= Kayro

    When I got my UK licence it said "tear along dotted line"

    I've been driving in the middle of the road at high speed ever since
