But, but...zmjezhd, what did you mean about almond? I've never heard it pronounced anything but ALL-mund. Please don't shock me as much as I was when I first heard someone say PEE-can.

Check out the variant pronunciation in the A-H dictionary: four. I learned the first one here on the Left Coast with the first vowel as in father and the l silent.

A TV show last night with a Hallowe'en theme
had the main characters pronouncing voodoo
as v'doo, accent on final syllable, and first just the "V".

Sort of related: today on the radio (I ran a BUNCH of errands this afternoon!) I heard an ad for a restaurant that sounded like they serve urban cheese bread.

I googled it. It's herb and cheese bread. It's in a Subway ad.
