This is a bit embarassing for me. :shame: How do you actually pronounce "Chevre de Coromandel"?
Shev de Kor-row-man-dell
Greentea I knew you would come to the rescue...you always do!
btw Greentea..where is that thread about how to pronounce the H colors and leather? I need to "review" it. thanks!
^^ not sure. It's buried on our board somewhere.
aww man..that thing deserves five star and a sticky!!!
here it is.
Thanks, Kristie! I just reviewed the guide. It is very helpful.
you wanna know something funny.....one of the SA's at the sydney boutique says "hermes" and pronounces the 'H'..........LOL!!
like HER - hard h sound. - ha!
can we stick that in the information thread? pretty please
thanks Kristie for digging that out !
no probs!! when i was 16, i called my hermes store just to hear how they pronounced it when they answered......i had to call three times to hear it right - and i hung up on them everytime!! (i was only16 *blushing*) - they must have wondered who the hell was giving them prank calls!....LOL!!.....probably thought it was a customer they knocked back for a bag.....ha, ha!!
Actually, you do pronounce the "r" in chevre. It sounds somewhat like this: "shev-r-de-coro-man-dell". French is my first language. :shame:
ggk84 is right - the word "chevre" (it's actually missing the "accent grave" on the first e) has the "r" pronounced. Kind of a bit of a roll on your tongue. I'm bilingual in both french and english - hope this helps!
