Full sentence:
"Can I barraw a dallar to buy same chaclate in the labby?"

see, it's easy
or the word "hockey" pronounced "hackey"

In English there aren't any accent egus, so the pronounciation changes. It's Montréal in French but Montreal in English.

Just like my name in French is "Daaw-vid" and in English it's "Day-vid"...

Or my favorite, in English "Dayve" and in French, "ehh, Day-vueeee"

I never understood why city names changed depending on the language you speak. Montréal is Montréal (when you have a keyboard allowing you to type it this way), Moscow or Moscou isn't right: it's Moskva (as long as you don't have access to the Cyrillic alphabet). Germany isn't right either, nor is Allemagne.... should be called Deutschland.... and it goes.... Don't get me wrong, French and English are doing it.

Because pronounciations change depending on language...Letters are pronounced differently, phonetics are different...And different languages require different parts of your toungue to speak, and different speach techniques. It's hard to pronounce something one way if you normally speak differently...

Example: Western languages use the tip of your toungue, but in China they don't, which is why you see many Chinese people struggle with speaking English even after they've been speaking for years.

Sort of important... The guy is playing on an English team, his coach speaks in english, the players speak english...He'd be left out if he didn't (other than the 3 others who speak russian, four amigoes?).

GAH! Don't even go there!

And at least Perezhogin is nothing like the other 3. He actually smiles, and looks happy when he or his linemates score.

I know! Chocolate is seen as candy down there, I guess.

I always pronounce Montréal as:
"Moe-rrrA(rrré)-al" in french
"Muntre-all" in english

Is it Bob Cole that always pronounces "Detroit" as "De-troy-yit"? That always bugged me. That and "Kaberlah".

Also my friend pronounces Calgary as "Cal-Gary" where I've always used "Cal-gree". Though that could be a Maritime thing where we like to knock off letters.

Oh well. Tomatoes/Tomahtoes

Wasn't Markov supposed to improve his english awhile back to better understand coachs' orders?

My sask roomate says "cal-gary" as well. I say Cal-gree, but I speak with an american accent, not canadian so I could be wrong.

Punch your friend in the face. That's two people, not a city.
