People who pronounce “Documentary” as “Doc-you-men-Terry”

Do they not hear others say the word and realize how aberrant their pronunciation is?

OP is an idiot. Sad.

Just watched Rick Stengel pronounce “homogenous” as “ho-mo-genius” and I wanted to scream. Partly because it’s wrong, but more because he was describing Republicans.

There should be NO word used to describe Republicans that include the word “genius”.

OP you are a special person indeed.

I agree OP. The extra syllable at the end is grating.

Tomato/Tomahto - Potato/Potahto - Cunt/Coont, OP!

Time to check in with an audiologist and a speech therapist, OP.

OP pronounces it like Marlene Dietrich.

R6, that is the correct American pronunciation.

Chip chip and cheerio! Allow me to introduce myself, Sir O. P. Poofington the Second, I am. I apologize for my predecessor's arrogance but in our well-regarded family, we pronounce words core-eckt-lee, we do. Let's talk body parts. There is the scroat-yum. The pehn-yees. And the ah-NOT AY-noose. The Ah-noose. As for documentary, one would pronounce that dock-uh-mentry. No "airy", no "you". Now, if you'll kindly excuse me, I see a large bollard blocking that parking lot and I simply must cram it forcefully up my tight ah-noose.

I still can't believe how many people on tv and in professional media say "impor'int", and "impor-TENT" because they can't do the glottal sound.

But what if you’re ordering two men named Terry to dock?

It's docu-men-tree

It's Feb-U-ary

It's li-berry

OP this is the pronunciation in parts of upstate for all words that end in -tary or -tery.

by Anonymousreply 15June 22, 2022 5:28 AM

Is OP retarded? Did he invent his own pronounciation?

R12, how is it pronounced?

It should be said “dock-u-men-ta-rie.”

by Anonymousreply 22June 22, 2022 11:29 AM

Sounds like how it should be pronounced?
