I'm phonming a potential emplyer and i don't want to get his name wrong:
Silent 'T' or not?
but you can't really tell.
it's the most professional thing you can do.
"Hello, can I speak to mr.. sorry, is it Waistle? or Waisle?"
if you're wrong, and he corrects you and gets all pissy you could have a good friendly lol about both having unpronounceable names.
even if this isn't necessarily true.
Didn't answer the phone anyway.
I can't stop giggling :(
You can whistle, sir.
like Wassily Kandinsky, with the W pronounced as a V.
like in 'thistle', but with a 'wai' instead of a 'thi'
