"How else do you pronounce creche?
I have always thought it odd that Brits pronounce crepe "krep". It's "crayp" here."
I mean, it's a French word, so I'm not sure why you'd think it odd to pronounce it the French way. It's "crêpe", not "crépe", so no "ay" sound should be creeping in there...

Jai to rhyme with pie is a west coast Scottish thing. I don't know anyone who says it that way (east coast).
I can't watch Mr Tumble any more since there was an episode involving a trip to a library and he spent the whole time saying 'Lie-bree. That's right, you sign LIE-BREE. Lie-bree.'
It's got 3 fucking syllables you spotty-bagged cuntweasel.

I often wonder with threads like this if we were been filmed / recorded anyone watching would think the MN world had gone mad , cos ( grr hate that word too ) we are all repeating words over and over that have no place been in a sentence together
my pet hates are
crips - crisps
hospickle - hospital
W-hole - whole ( its a silent W ffs )
I find it more annoying when people are using the wrong or made up words -
Brung - NO you did not brung it to me you brought it to me
I borrowed it to him - no you lent it to him .
I Lendid it - nope you it lent .

I'm intrigued some folk are justifying the JAI pronunciation as being "Scottish" or being from Scotland ..... we are aware there's more than one Scottish accent / dialect 🤔
I'd never say it was a "Scottish" pronunciation .... perhaps more common in West Coast / Glasgow folks IMHO but that's not the same as "Scottish".
(Not just another furryboot-er claiming central belt bias 😂)
