Re: [Groop]Groo Jamboree, etc.
Yeah, people pronouncing it "ur" instead or "air" is a little annoying.
Surprisingly, when I looked it up in the dictionary, it had both
pronunciations listed as correct! But no one pronounces "error" with the
"ur" sound, ur-or. Everyone pronounces it "air-or". So why wouldn't they
automatically pronounce err as "air"? Maybe it's an east coast-west coast
thing. Most folks I've run into pronounce it "air". I am now thoroughly
confused! The standard condition of a Groo fan! Take care all. -Gary G.
