    Just want to chime in on the pam/pamn debate. Up here hawk is a single syllable word.

    “Hock” sounds like cock
    “Hawk” sounds kind of like “caulk” but remains 1 syllable

    Ham hock and chicken hawk. The only difference in saying these two things is that ham and chicken sound different.

    My contention is that while "hock" is the "correct" way to pronounce it, that's dumb. This is one the southerners get right. There's a W in the word; use it. "Tony Hock Pro Skater!" Sounds so dumb. Tony Hawk.

    At my first job there was a guy with the last name Hock. Every time he helped out, this other guy would send out an email saying "Thanks to Hock for swooping in and helping out." That was about 12 years ago and I literally just figured out that he was getting at the Hock/Hawk thing. It never even crossed my mind.

    They are not pronounced the same. Unless you have the "da bears" Chicago accent maybe.

    Except the difference is preserved by people from... the south, the northeast, and the "inland north"

    In other words, people with strong accents

    "Preserved" means we are saying it correctly and your Oregon accent isn't. Hth

    I say it like "cawfee". On that one I recognize I'm being a southerner and mispronouncing though. It doesn't have a W in it like hawk

    Hock and hawk definitely have very slightly different pronunciations. I'm never heard hawk pronounced as a two syllable word, so I'm not sure where that's coming from. The only way I can think to describe it is to say hock with a more rounded sound on the O. I don't really think it's a southern thing, as hock is very simple to say as well.
