...There's an actual spelling for the letter 'H'?

I think I need to go back to school.

"Your room...it's CLEAN!!!"
"I prayed to God...and...it happened...but...where's my million dollars and horse!? Damn it!"

Worry? Wurry? They sound the same to me. How d'you pronounce the 'wor' bit?

"Your room...it's CLEAN!!!"
"I prayed to God...and...it happened...but...where's my million dollars and horse!? Damn it!"

It is quite subtle and I never noticed it until they pointed out the difference. I pronounce the wo as W O, but they pronounce it as W U.

This is reminding me of how my friends from Canada pronounce 'sorry' vs. how we monkeys in Utah pronounce it. There's a difference, but it's not too huge. They say 'sore-y' and we say 'saw-ry'. One of my friends likened our pronounciation to Barney the Dinosaur.

"Your room...it's CLEAN!!!"

Barney is strange. I distinctly remember one of my elementary teachers requiring the class to sing Barney songs while we cleaned up the room at the end of the day.

"Your room...it's CLEAN!!!"

Which is correct? Either? Neither?

Could someone please help a non-native speaker with the intricacies of neither/nor in two consecutive sentences - this always throws me :-// :

Example: I could not find my car keys. Neither? / Nor? could my parents who were also looking for them.

I am in favour of neither, am I wrong? (Very likely )

And does "none" take the singular or the plural?

None of them reads a lot (read ? a lot)

I am in favour of the singular, buuuuuuuuuuut....

Thanks for your help

Has anyone noticed how Americans pronounce the word 'vagina' funny? its pretty annoying to be honest. Like there is a particular stress on the first 3 letters, but it is pronounced like there is a 'J' in it. So it is Vajina..... Funny how the pronunciation of words change when in america...

This really has me interested now... how am I supposed to pronounce it? I'd like to know... as I have one. I'll have to use different names for it until I get my proper pronounciation down.
