So, I was watching 'American Heroes Channel' ( AHC, formerly 'The Military Channel'), and I heard the narrator pronounce the town Ypres "Yuhprees
"That can't POSSIBLY be right" I muttered to my television, who declined the opportunity to express an opinion.
Here is the actual pronunciation, if you speak ENGLISH or French. www.howjsay.com/index.php?word…
As a sesquilingual Canadian, I have always used the French form. EEPre, with the same sounding ending as fenêtre
If you are going to document HISTORY, shouldn't you make sure to cross your eyes and dot all the teas?
No wonder the actual American military doesn't want their name associated with this television channel.
