How do you pronounce the above British place name? It may not be what you think.
Britain is home to many villages and towns with counterintuitive pronuniciations, as we’ve learned before. In this week’s episode of the Anglophenia YouTube series, BritSiobhan Thompson teaches an American, Science Friction host Rusty Ward, how to say some of the more difficult place names of the United Kingdom. Kudos to anyone who can pronounce “Llanelli” without soaking their computer screen in saliva.
