Because if you pronounce so it rhymes with roth I'll pronounce you. Dead.
My history teacher told me.
It is roth. Or rorth, apparently, but I'm guessing that's only if you're posh. No rath.
What does the OED know? I will carry on pronouncing it as rath except for in front of my girlfriend's dad who thinks people who pronounce the french word 'fin' as 'fin' are ignoramuses.
it's the rest of everybody with the funny pronunciations.
I like how brits pronounce 'schedule'. I'm like a "shed u" what? Oh, skedjewel.
who pronounce 'bath' as 'bawth'
who the fuck says it like that? hang the lot if em i say
said "Cape Roth" on an advert for gritty Brit drama 'Cape Wrath'.
a lot of them say "fillum" instead of "film". Retards
it's the same guy. Oop next on fillum fooor, Trearnspo'in.
It may sound antiquated and a bit posh. But it's roth dammit
i can't remember, but i grew up in detroit, so i have an excuse
"roth" sounds like the way British people talk in american films.
it sounds less threatening as roth. It's supposed to strike fear into men, not get confused with meaty water.
Warlords and wrestlers are.
And they don't say roth.
And THAT, my friend, sounds scary.
"you will feel the rath of my bombast."
but then i also pronounce bath as bath and grass as grass.
because wrath has an 'a' in i not an 'o'. He clues in the spelling.
my spelling in that post was shit. that should be 'in it' and 'The clues'.
But she's Welsh, so she gets off with it.
uk - roth
usa - rath
but the influx of american tv programmes has led to british people thinking that rath is the correct one, leading a whole world of confusion
but i know i'm common
rathing good fun
with people on big brother (both the 'big brothers' and the housemates) pronouncing it as 'rath.' I looked it up in the Chambers Dictionary (the definitive?) and it stated quite unclearly that it should be pronounced either as 'roth,' or something which i think (i cant read phonetic alphabet) sounds like 'rorth,' and something which sounds like 'rarth.' Now since only toffy bastards would say the latter two, in all my life I have been right to think it 'roth.'
Its like people say 'laying' instead of 'lying.' American infiltration.
