    Hammock Pronunciation

    Almost daily, me and my fiance argue and joke about the pronunciation of "hammock", among other words. I say it's [hamick], she says [ham mock] slower like two separate words which is annoying

    Of course she says it like it's spelled, but the English language would be in big trouble if that were always true.

    So let's have it...

    Markr6, That may help win the battle, but do you want to lose the war. Perhaps a more satisfying response for both your sakes would be, "Perhaps your are right."

    Hubby say's HammOck....but then he also say's KIyOk. I say HammIck, and kIyAk. (spelling done to how we say it)
    It's just funny to us how different we say the words and something to tease each other on.

    I say "ham ick" and sometimes "ham uck". I suppose it should be "ham mock" since thats how its spelled. That is how I was told to pronounce it back when I was in shoole, er, I mean school.
