-boro

Cities such as Greensboro, Waterboro, and Middlesboro...

Where are you from and how would you pronounce them?



Also, Worcester.

Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

While I guess this is cool and all.. it's kind of emergent gameplay.

I meant where are you from (to get a reference on what sort of accent you might have) and how do you pronounce -boro..

I was having an argument with my girlfriend.

I pronounce it as a cross between "boh-roh" and "buh-roh".

I usually pronounce -boro in regards to the previous vowel sounds or the consonants.

Usually -burough, though. A stronger ending with a "lazy" softened g sound.

Coming from a Worcester resident, I can assure you the correct way to say it is "Wooster"

Oh.

I thought it was all just a ploy to find out where we all lived so you can find us and.... do things.

Who in their right mind named a place Worcester, and decided to call it "Wooster"?

And who in their right mind with a singing career has a name like Sade and for absolutely no reason decides to pronounce it "Shar-day"?
