    We have our first turkeys and had to look up what to call that thing over their nose [​IMG]

    Is the "oo" in snood pronounced like hood or like food? It sounds kinda silly either way, but we are having a debate in the house about which may be correct [​IMG]

    [​IMG] now we're all confused. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    EDIT TO ADD: I do talk with an accent - so that might be my problem.

    Bugs the HECK out of me when folks talk about the type of car - COUPE, and pronounce it COOP. Drives me NUTS.

    [​IMG] Perhaps it is one of those words where the pronunciation just depends on the pronouncer, lol.

    How do you say Toupe - the rug bald men wear? Do you say TOOP? Or Too-PAY?

    So coupe would be Coo-pay right?
