Subject: Re: Englished French words
For French words which have been thoroughly converted to English
pronunciation, what about squaredance terms? I don't think it would be
easy to recognize dosey-do, for example, as having once been French.
Considering what the French have done to the pronunciation of "hot dog"
(h, t, and g silent), I don't feel embarrassed about any Americanized
pronunciations of French words.
