Pronunciation

Ok. Is this regional? Is this country? Is this right? Is this wrong?

Assume standard (assume much? 🙂 ) English Canadian tv news presenter speech.

 

Is it mobile as like noble?

Or is it mobile as like profile?

 

Or who says it what way and what is your linguistic background. (if you're willing to share)

 

I say mobile like profile. English Canadian from the west.

Re: Pronunciation

Mobile mostly rhymes with docile profile camomile to me.

 

Mobil noble Constantinople sounds too American to my ear and tastes bad in my sentences.

 

I speaking my Englishes very goodly in the lower mainland, BC.

Re: Pronunciation

"Mo-bile" is just a bit more cumbersome to speak vs. "Mo-bull" so I tend to go with Mobul.  But yes it might well be an Americanized pronunciation.  One of my favourite YouTubers is Michael Fisher, aka. "Mr Mobile", (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSOpcUkE-is7u7c4AkLgqTw) and he tends to say it as bull.

 

I think the British tend to say "Mo-bile", at least based on a sample of a few I work with.

Re: Pronunciation

"Resistance is FUT-ULL" or "Resistance is FU-TILE"?

 

Even Star Trek's Borg - a cybernetically-enslaved hive mind - can't agree on this basic pronunciation.

@srlawren@z10user4    The English language and it's pronunciation can be quite curious from region to region, let alone country to country.  But I'm not sure how you get to pronounce mobile with a "u" sound, I could understand just "mobil" (ill) perhaps?  But then I don't understand why many people (mostly Americans, I think) say "holloween" instead of halloween, or "ruf" instead of roof.  Probably not really important but can be quite irritating 😊
