Saw this on a van earlier today advertising a cleaning company.

Because it is a essentially advertising as a last name is it correct and pronounced polish (as in to clean and shine)

I'm not sure what you're asking - how to pronounce it, like cleaning or like the country? I'd go for the cleaning one, like you say. I'm sure if you got it wrong they would correct you.

Is it the full stop you are questioning?

My question is how is it pronounced- with the capital P is it still polish

Thank you - my grammar is shocking and I will run away from pedants corner! Thanks

Surely it's all in the context. If it's a cleaning company it's polish,even if traditionally with a capital p it's not pronounced that way, if it was a van for a supplier of say Eastern European foods I'd assume it was as in the country.

That's why I was asking - to clarify

Maybe Mrs Polish is a Polish woman who does polishing? She is, cleverly, using the play on words?
