Out of the Blue

As February draws to a close, I want to give the broadcast professionals of the world something to work on for next year. Look at the way the month is spelled, and take note of the "r" in the middle there. Not the one at the end; most of you have that one down cold. No, I'm talking about the first one, which makes the pronunciation of the word "February," not "Febuary." You have 11 months to practice that so hopefully we can get some progress on this for February 2010.

Never noticed "Febuary." My own pet peeve is "dubya dubya dubya." Really, a broadcast professional should be able to handle "double u double u double u" without any problem at all. For us normal people, dubya is just fine--I'm no purist. Double u is hard to say three times fast without it sounding stilted. But people who talk for a living should be able to master it so that it sounds natural.
