Up here in New York, I've picked up the habit of mispronouncing any Spanish word as badly as I can to see if anyone notices or corrects me. |
Taco = "tack-oh"
Burrito = "burr-it-oh"
Quesadilla = "Kwes-ah-dill-a", "dill" as in "dill pickle"
Jalapeños = "jal-o-peen-os", with the j sound in "jar".
Chipotle = "chi-poodle" (no we don't have one of those up here, I use that at McDonalds on the snack wraps)
No one has noticed so far. I think a couple of Puerto Ricans have snickered to themselves, though.
