Somehow We All Passed the 3rd Grade.

Hanging out with my girlfriends the other day, we just happened to come across a number of words that we weren't sure how to pronounce. After much debate, argument and hair pulling, we busted out the trusty computer and did some research. And then we continued to say them wrong anyway.

Ethereal: \i-ˈthir-ē-əl\
Cairo (as in Cairo, Egypt): \ˈkī-(ˌ)rō\
Damusk: \ˈda-məsk\

I NEVER say "writhe" correctly. Ever. Now it's so confused in my brain that I can't remember which way is right and which is wrong.

And yes, I even have a college degree. And NOT from Phoenix Online.
