How Do We Pronounce These Eight Foods?

posted by Drew - 

 Do you say CAR-mull, or CARE-uh-mel?  According to an online poll, 57%of us say it the second way, with three syllables.  Also, 62% say peh-CAHN, not PEE-can.  And 52% say MAN-aise, while 48% say MAY-oh-naise.

 

 

And there any words you pronounce differently than other people,?  Maybe because of where you grew up, or how your parents said them?
