i will write you off as a person if you mispronounce “sake” SAKI.
i will get up, get my bag, put on my coat and hail a cab and go home and never return your calls. if i see you in public i will pretend that i can’t see you.
learn this world: i am a judgey, bitchy, snobby person.
(in response to all the talk about this article)
Please no one ever show Mr. Crabby this article. No, seriously, we’ve fought about how to pronounce gyro for years. I swear to Zeus my Greek friends pronounced it GHEE-roh and he swore it was pronounced YEER-oh, so lets just pretend this never happened.
to be honest, sake should really be spelled in Kanji, but who really has that font on their computer these days…. As for the gyros, Mr. C is right for the most part, but yet again, using english to approximate pronunciation in other languages is always a pain.
