The katana's name is pronounced the same way.

What to expect. People don't know how to pronounce Japanese correctly and immediately read it as mah-nuh-moon. =x

Pizza = Peet-sa.

Ballet = Bah-lay.

Cafe = Cah-fay.


I'm going to get some Piz-uh at the Cayf after watching the Bah-let.

By the way, none of those three words are Japanese, but they are present in American society.

Screw the bah-let, I'ma go watch the Toor dee Fraynz.

People in general fail at pronunciation, drives me bonkers.

EDIT: For those playing the home game.. the Tour de France is more accurately Tour (I hate words that are spelled phonetically how they should sound - reads lazy) d'Frauhns.

Now try and sound out 'Quebecois'. :3
