Subject: Re: ornery
My students often spell it that way because it is pronounced like
that here (and in other western states I've lived in). They
have a hard time finding the correct spelling in dictionaries.
I pronounce "ornery" with three syllables AND I pronounce both r's. I
don't understand how it is that I've seen it spelled "awnry" which I
assume is another pronunciation of the same word. Has anyone else seen
this spelling? Or have other info.?
