The word is "NUCLEAR". [noo-klee-er]

It is NOT "NUCULAR". [nook-you-ler]



The word is "NUCLEAR".



If you are going to call into a nation wide, talk radio show, please try not to sound like a complete idiot.

Exactly.

It is a legitimate regional dialect.

People didn't make fun of it when Eisenhower or Jimmy Carter pronounced it that way - it was only only Bush did that all the haters tried to claim that it was "wrong"


But that its just fine and dandy for the current President to say Pockeston like he's a native Urdu speaker.

U.S. presidents that have used this pronunciation include Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton,[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucular#cite_note-Slate-4][5][/url] Dwight D. Eisenhower, and George W. Bush. Other politicians who have used this pronunciation include Vice Presidents Walter Mondale and Dick Cheney and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucular#cite_note-Slate-4][5][/url][url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucular#cite_note-Nunberg-5][6][/url][url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucular#cite_note-6][[/url]7]

It may be accepted, but that doesn't make it correct. Some people "axe" you a question. It's coloquial, but incorrect.

I don't really get bent about it. I only associate with people who can speak correctly, so it's not an issue.

That's a semi-retarded question, since either are acceptable.

Ill remind my father of that next time he gets called in to work on the water supply at a power plant.

FWIW he's worked on water treatment and cooling systems for power plants all over the SW since the 70's and says "nook-ya-lur"

For all intensive purposes either is correct. Irregardless, I could care less.

There's a difference between a regional dialect and an incorrect pronounciation.

for example, what is the correct pronounciation of Missouri? I lived in Missouri for 12 years, and I can tell you that MANY people in Missouri pronounce it "Missourah." Are we really supposed to believe that many actual residents of Missouri are pronouncing the name of their own state incorrectly, just because most people IN OTHER STATES do not pronounce it that way? Of course not. Both the "Missouri" and the "Missourah" prnounciation are correct.

I admit that since Missouri is a proper name, that might not the the BEST example - but the reality is that some words DO have regional variations on their pronounciation - and the fact that most people pronounce a certain word in a particular way does not automatically mean that a regional dialect variation is "incorrect"


I would say that when the regional dialect crosses the line between different ways of expressing a given syllable and transposing letters or syllables, it is, in fact, incorrect.

And some sub-cultures also have their own dialect, which to a linguist is just as valid as is regional dialect. That doesn't change the fact that "Nucular" is just as ignorant and stupid sounding as is "Axt" or the color "Errange"...

If you're gonna give a pass to regional dialect, you're gonna have to give a pass to Ebonics too...

FFFFFFfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff­ffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu




Further to the point, many proper place names are pronounced differently depending on region. There's a state that's northeast of California called Nevada. It's pronounced nuh-VAH-duh. There's a little town in SW Missouri called Nevada, and it's pronounced nuh-VAY-duh.

Lebanon, the country, has three syllables. Lebanon, MO, is pronounced LEB-nun. Norfolk, VA, is pronounced nor-FUCK or nor-FOLK, but Norfolk, NE is pronounced NOR-fork.

I loves me some regional dialect.
