since most european dont speak english i wouldnt say its a european way.

but yea us brits do love the way americans cant say it. even if u guys change the spelling to match the way u say it.

I know how to pronounce it, but I don't go around saying "Oh, I really need some Al-you-men-e-um foil" when I'm thinking of supplies I need to buy. It was originally published as Aluminum...it was the British who decided it wasn't "Classical" sounding enough for them and added the "ium" so it would fit their tastes.


well yeah english is our toung. in the oxford dictionary it is spelt correct. i choose to say it proper

That's fine. In the Webster's Dictionary it's spelled the way I pronounced it. So there's no wrong way to say it and no reason for you to act snobbish saying how you like to "lol" listening to us pronounce it. The end.

You have a really cute voice! And you have a general American accent to me.

I am from Norway and my accent is quite weird and now i am enhancing more of my English accent.I am working in a callsenter or call center in Norway which i really need to make my english fluent every time so that they can understand it well.Well for now i quite having difficulties and i admit that i need to learn more from english language.


I'm surprised you said that because Scandinavians generally speak almost perfect English. I've never been to Norway but when I was in Denmark, I didn't have to ask a single person if they speak English before I speak with them. And their Danish accent is probably one of the faintest comparing to other people who speak English as a second language.
