Pronunciation Question

  • Since when did the correct pronunciation of Iraq become, "Eerock?"

    I'm guessing it's that Nazi Christian Amanpour. Bitch.

    I thought it was pronounced "Eyerack?"

    I would ask an Iraqi that question and that would be your answer.

    I always thought is was "eyerack" but I've heard Iraqis on t.v say "Erock" so I am led to believe that that is the correct pronunciation.

    Probably has a lot to do with different accents as in Iraq the I may have the E sound

    Our church has no bells.
    FWIW, I took two years of Arabic in hs before being thrown out of the program for writing "Fuck you, Mrs. Sadat" on a banner in front of the school the day before she came to speak. The correct pronunciation, as I recall, is Eee-rock, kinda like Ewok.

    Is this what led to your advocacy of musical sabotage of Arab Culture?
