That’s it. I just want to know you lovely people from the USA (and anywhere else) would say Papa. As in Papa my grandfather.
See here we pronounce it Par-Par. Each syllable evenly stressed. lol but without the hard r sounding. But then I thought other people might say it Pap-a or I don’t know, Pa-par. So I need to know how people would pronounce it please.
Like Sailor Babo for example. See I always thought he was Bab-o but it turns out he’s more of a Bay-bo.
I was on a train once, years ago, going to work in Sydney and a group of older americans were sitting across from me and this big guy said to me – Whats the next station? And I said Artarmon. And I pronounced it Are-tar-mon. And he cracked up laughing at me and turned to his cronies and said – did you hear that? And then he mimicked me but he really dragged it out. Like Arrrrr-tarrrrr-mon. And I just thought, well I won’t repeat what I thought.
So, Papa. Spell it out please
