somern commented on the word praline
The correct way to pronounce this is "prah-line" not "pray-line," although, if the announcer at my 8th grade spelling bee had used the latter pronunciation, I would have gotten it right, not wrong! Because she pronounced is "prawline" which sound like "Pauline," who was my step-grandmother. Duh.
