Tennessee, Florida, is one of the most-visited fishing spots in the United States, but it’s not a fishy place.
The word for ‘fish’ in this area is ‘fish.’
It’s pronounced ‘fuhk’, but it isn’t.
So why is that?
According to the dictionary, it is pronounced ‘funky’.
But what is the pronunciation of ‘fish’?
The word for fish is ‘fukk’.
But it isn.
So what’s going on?
Fish are a family of animals.
There are many different types of fish, but the one that’s commonly used is the red snapper, which are the commonest type.
But red snappers are not actually fish, they’re birds.
There’s a type of snapper called the pike, but there’s also a type called the green snapper.
These are not fish.
So when we use ‘fish’, we’re actually using ‘bird’.
But it’s different to say, ‘I’m going to the fish market.’
Because you know what?
There are fish markets in this country, there are fish farms, there’s fish markets that sell all kinds of fish.
But they’re not fish markets.
So if you’re looking for fish, you’re going to fish markets, not fish restaurants.
And fish is a lot of different things, like, ‘the fish market’, ‘the restaurant’, ‘a fish shop’, ‘your local fish market’.
There are all these different ways that people can say fish.
It is an interesting concept, so we asked the linguists to give us some suggestions on what’s the correct pronunciation.
The dictionary has suggested the pronunciation, and that’s the one we’re going with, but what do you think?
Do you prefer the pronunciation ‘fuz’ or ‘funk’?
Or maybe you prefer ‘fahk’ instead of ‘fum’?
