    Yes. And it's small potatoes.

    The world is on fire, and you're kvetching about a mispronunciation on some goober review on yootoob?

    90% of everything on yootoob is gooberific. That Braun guy, Rick Beato...Anderton's...goobers. SFB goobers.

    Its not worth getting wound up about.

    I love it!...Gooberific. Is that in the same class as Craptastic?

    No...its actually on a higher plane of goobosity. Craptastic works for inanimate objects really well.

    "These strings are Craptastic!"

    LOL

    You can just say, “Gimme a set of XL tens, please.” The fella who takes your money don’t care if you call ‘em giardia-os or darty-dos. He really don’t.

    Starting a thread on pronunciation at 3AM on a guitar forum speaks volumes unto itself.

    I agree with you. Another one that gets me is D'Angelico. It's Dan-jellico, not Dee-an-jellico.

    They do.

    Do you pronounce Can't "Canatee"? Nope.
    It's a simple Latin contraction, same as the French "I Love" Je aime is contracted to J'aime
    You contract adjacent vowels... in this case, "De" is a prefix meaning "of" or "from"... it's like MacArthur is "From Arthur" or "Son of Arthur"
    This is basically "Son of Addario" or "Son of Angelico"

    All I know is that more than a few names & words I've heard pronounced at least two ways.
    Often surnames have different pronunciations than may appear to a casual observer according to those with the name.
    And then the British not only have that silent u in some words they also pronounce some words differently than us. Like one I heard say ga rog for garage.
    English is highly flexible for sure.

    Anyways, an American commenting on the pronunciation of a language other than American, is very funny.
    Apologies to all my American friends

    You americans are terribile when you read italian names. :p


    P.s. and now, according to grritz, you can trust me as a reviewer of D'Addario products ahahah.

    P.p.s. on the other hand, nobody in Italy can't pronounce Henry Kissinger correctly. We say: Enry Keyss-seen-jerrr.

    I mean, I guess it is good to actually know how to pronounce the name of the strings I always pass over on my way to the EBs or cleartones.
