  6. Indeed! For the next few days, we can all go around wishing each other
    season's greetings, basking in a glow of Christmas goodwill. Then in
    January we can get back to the usual sorry-arsed state of affairs for
    another year.

    At least the shopping and wrapping will soon be over. Snarl.

    That will be a relief.

    Oh, I've always wondered: how do you guys pronounce 'arse'?

    And is 'gaol' pronounced like our 'jail'?

    'a' as in 'father'. 'r' is sounded. 's' as in 'sugar', not as in
    'cause'.
    Yes. We use 'jail' as well.

    Or even two silent "h"s
     
  12. We simply say it in such a way that it rhmyes with "farce" (an absurd
    comedy - the pronunciation of which is the same in the US as here)
     
  13. I read in sci.electronics.design that John Fields <[email protected]
    Two silent h's. NOT 's' as in 'sugar'; 's' as in 'senior moment'!

    It WAS pronounced with 'sh' at the end in the dim and distant past.

  17. This makes it so interesting. It's nice to be able to extract a bit of
    useful info even from the usual holiday greetings.
    Merry Christmas to all.
    Best regards,
