How do you pronounce ''worcestershire''.
wassabi   Sunday, March 14, 2004, 02:34 GMT
the way i say it is:
wor (as in wort) sh-ter-sher
a.k.a: wor-sh-ter-sher sauce
Californian   Sunday, March 14, 2004, 03:51 GMT
Wuss (as in someone who is a wuss) - ter sauce.
Californian   Sunday, March 14, 2004, 03:52 GMT
Oops, I meant wuss-ter-sher
Also Californian   Sunday, March 14, 2004, 09:26 GMT
I would say "wor (as in wort) sest-er-shire"

Worcestershire sauce is japanized as a borroed word and we say "woostar(woo like wood) sauce".
Chilli   Sunday, March 14, 2004, 17:12 GMT
Like momo. Wuss-star.

Like Californian - wuss-ter-sher ['wus t..r S..r] sauce

People from Worcestershire (a county in the English Midlands) say 'wuss-ter-sher', so I guess this is the correct form.

I pronounce it "woosta-sheer": ['wust..Si..] ... but, yeah, best ask someone from Worcestershire.

I believe <wAR-stuh-shEAr> is more correct.

Only if you are a U.S. tourist. There are three syllables: 'wuss-ter-sher' and the stress falls on the first syllable (for most British English speakers, at any rate).

why did they have to create such a complicated spelling since it's kind of obvious that there would be a dilema?
