How do British people distinguish an iPad from an iPod?
Since pad is pronounced as pod, fast is pronounced as fost, etc., it must be very confusing.
They hear the difference, you're just too dense to hear it
if you're too dense, then you cunt hear the difference.
Perhaps since it is an American product they pronounce it in American English.
British people, who btw speak with a wide variety of accents, differentiate between their o's and their a's, and therefore, "iPad" will never be confused with "iPod" and vice versa.
How do British people distinguish between someone who is artistic and someone who is autistic?
OP, you're insane. Or possibly Dick Van Dyke (or as he's known in England, Richard Lorry Lesbian) from Mary Poppins.
AH-tis-tic. AWE-tis-tic. Idiots, the lot of you.
I think they call the iPad a tablet
What are these strange inventions of which you speak? We stick with pencils and paper here, the rain ruins electronics
OP, you are a fucking moron.
Can't hear you. My I-PODE is playing.
Just like in North America. The iPad is bigger.
Trying to work out if this post is a joke or not. if it isnt, then oh dear.
R11 We call it the iPad just like in the US. Pad as in sad (short a) iPod as in sod (short o). As in sod off.
OP its just a different accent that's all. As R7 pointed out there are a lot of regional variations in speech in the UK as in the US.
What in the actual f
Brits pronounce a and o differently... you must be too deaf to hear in their accents ipAd vs ipOd
Dress sense, R8
HAWK! I heeya the cannons raw!

That doesn't help, R16, because to us, it sounds like Brits say "sod" and "sad" the same way.
If I may weigh in -- as I am currently at loose ends -- I think … that .. wait .. what were we talking about?
Oh hell with it, I say "Jeah!"
I've never heard Lochte speak. Is "Jeah" just "yeah" with a j? What does it mean?
I'm still stuck on why it's pronounced "shedule," but "school" and "scholar" don't get the same treatment.
I hope his people were at least quick to patent that idiotic utterance.
Does "through" and "trough" get you as well?
Not the same, R27.
-ough has different pronunciations in English, but "sch" only has one. Why is "schedule" the exception with Brits? An homage to the German royals?
It sounds the same to American ears.
R20 How do Americans pronounce "add" and "odd"? See there's a difference in the vowel sounds? It's just shorter with the standard English accent.
Difficult without hearing it - see the attached vid, if you don't want to watch all of it, skip to 2:00.
Just to point out this is RP - Received Pronunciation. As I mentioned before there is alot of variation in English accents, as there is in the US.
