Dammit - SAH-DER v SOLE-DER


I never bothered looking up the pronunciation of this word up until just this moment.

I'll still probably say sole-der because I'm a rebel like that.

Both are correct. SoL-der is more english, and is technically more correct. I say sawder because it sounds better and that's how I was taught in school. SoLder sucker just sounds harsh.

I'm sure some of our English friends would love to point out our American deficiencies as far as pronunciation goes, but a very real case can be made that the original pronunciation is in fact "sodder" and not "sole-der" as they would like us to believe. It's all good either way but.......



I do recall reading the findings of a language study whose root question was who sounds more like 17th century (and earlier) speakers of old world English, modern Americans or modern Brits. Apparently it's Americans. According to this study modern British pronunciation and accent has strayed further from that spoken back during the early colony days than that of modern American English.

Who'd a thunk it?

So British English is more highly evolved than US English. No surprises there.

Im under the pump here at the moment but just quickly - those that drive on the correct side of the road say solder, those that drive on the wrong side of the road say sawdurr

No flying today - slightly large cyclone about to hit (NW of Western Australia!!)

Now why you wanna try an go make it all personal?


Just for the record, more highly evolved (whatever that is) doesn't automatically mean better, it just means it's different.

Up here it's mostly a derogatory term used by those intellectually challenged, and rarely used as a term for a cigarette or bundle of sticks. Two other definitions.

What's a good time and place to visit down your way? My wife is from Japan and apparently Australia is a fairly popular destination for them, and she's been making noises. If you're married, you know how that goes. Once those noises start.....
