The joy of mn. I'm sitting on my own silently until this thread, which had left me saying vegetable outloud several timed, leading my oh to come to check on me. "What was that?", "I was saying vegetable".

The 2nd... Or veg-e-taa-blur if I'm satirising the French

user892 Sat 04-Feb-17 20:14:35

Actually, mine is more like veg-ta-baw

Is probably about it

The second one. 3 syllables (sp?) not 4.

My kids pronounce it "gedditoffmyplate" smile

I normally say that typing out pronunciations is a but useless because English doesn't work like that.

I definitely don'e pronounce the middle e though.

Veg-ta-bul. Can't stand the pronunciation veg-e-table.

Wed-ns-day also irritates me.

Trills Sat 04-Feb-17 20:28:49

It's clearly Wends-day.

The same way it's obviously Marley-bone.

Only ostentatiously posh people say "vedge- e-table". Same sort that say "Weddd ns day". Deeply objectionable grin
