Concerning what I wrote about 'Shoh eh', certainly 'shoh' is (and was)
pronounced as 'shaw' (using English spelling), or 'shore' if you don't
pronounce the 'r' like a Scot! I didn't mean the pronunciation of 'shoh'
itself here, and excuse me if I was leading people astray. I meant people
putting an 'r' sound in where it shouldn't be, like the BBC people when
they say 'drawrings' for 'drawings'. I meant people saying 'Shaw ray' in
place of 'Shaw ay' or 'Shawkh ay' for 'Shoh eh'. I hope that's clearer!
