I could give a fuck about how Bush pronounces things, although you will find that the way he pronounces "nuclear" is a prevalent pronunciation in much of the South and Midwest. The thread started with someone implying that Bush was stupid because he pronounced nuclear "incorrectly." Except the point you are missing is that this pronunciation is part of several American dialects
. So if you have proof that it is not part of a dialect, not a regional variation in English, that is what you need to say in order to advance your point. Just saying it doesn't make it so. I live somewhere where it is pronounced that way, because of our dialect. I'm not sure how to prove that to you, but if you will take me as an honest person, I don't see how you can miss that point. Bigotry is bad in and of itself - I'm not trying to say that anyone has reached a level of murderous bigotry in this thread. Melodrama schmelodrama. People are insulting my region, and me, implying that we are unintelligent because of the way we speak. If you can't understand that I have answered your question three times, I'm not sure how to make it any clearer! I'll ignore your vailed insults for now, giving you the benefit of the doubt that you actually want to have a conversation>
you should re-learn the alphabet and whoever taught you to read should be fired.
But stop insulting me and my neighbors and family!
