Poteito, potahto?[edit]

Is "traunch" or "tranche" apropos? Discuss. Alec Sanderson (talk) 21:07, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

EDIT: Googling "tranche" brings up the Wikipedia articles on "tranches", "traunch" brings up the Investopedia article on "traunches". So... I'll go with POTATOE CorruptUser (talk) 21:13, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
How do you pronounce "apropos" apropos? (talk) 21:15, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
Depends if you're English or French. Like the old joke "There's a moose loose!" "Are you English or Scots?" Ithaca8 (talk) 21:51, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm neither and I understand both; hence my dilemma. (talk) 21:53, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
The English pronunciation is APPRO-PO. Ithaca8 (talk) 22:03, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
FYI the French is ah-PROpos, with the R being the back-of-the-throat noise english people (in general) can't do.Ithaca8 (talk) 22:15, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
