There’s something irritating about people not pronouncing your home city correctly, even after you’ve told them repeatedly the ‘e’ is silent or there’s no stress on the last syllable. To save us all a headache and hours of debate, thrillophilia put together a list of commonly mispronounced cities to educate us on the correct way to say them.
Like with Melbourne. I’m pretty sure most people have heard the correct pronunciation of the city, but still it’s a favourite of travellers everywhere to call it ‘Mel-BORN’ and not ‘Melb’n’. Get it right, people!
And did you even know it’s ‘Bahn-Gawk’ not ‘Bang-kok’?
