Only player to hit two grand slams in one inning in MLB history.
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
Play the two pronunciations, tell me if you hear a difference, or if you know the difference in pronunciation between ä and ȯ
Ham hock and chicken hawk. The only difference in saying these two things is that ham and chicken sound different.
I can hear a difference but only because I'm listening for it
"You see that hawk flying around up there?"
"There's a flying ham?"
Best of luck getting money for the truck, but I have a feeling come Friday Roy will not be getting 600 duckets.
Rooting for you though
It sounds like “awk” with an “h” in front of it.
It appears it's actually an accent that makes them sound the same, not an accent that makes them sound different. It's called the cot-caught merger
Oh my god lol
I work with wildlife and have never heard anyone say hawk other than how you are supposed to
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.
I hate when you go to a thread because you notice there's new posts but you get in there and it's by someone you ignore and you realize that's why you didn't get an alert
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.
w is silent
ok guys, do you say mic and mike the same way or no?
This is getting ockward
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
Some stuff we get right. "Y'all" is a much more efficient word that we have given the English language
Right. The people who pronounce coffee like cwawfee are right
reee at the idea any pronunciation is broadly "correct"
This isnt that serious brah
What sort of terrible shows are you watching that give you these impressions?
That's how people from jersey say coffee
but then i can't use my feinting cot
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
Get in the cah
I'm gonna start typing phonetically so you guys can learn how I pronounce everything
It is impossible for me to make that cot-caught distinction without it sounding like I'm doing an impression of someone else's accent
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.
Nothing anyone from Jersey says is the correct pronunciation
Like a name "mick" or like short for microphone?
Short for microphone. If you call it Mick, woo boy.
When I'm on the mic
My rhymes are real sick!
oh i get it
I'm on Instagram now so I'm gonna start critiquing that too. I hate when you scroll through Facebook, then go to Instagram and see all the same shit you already saw. Automatic cross posting is the height of narcissism
Hawks are in my top 3 favorite animals
Cocks are in my top 1
i sure do love cocks
What's a hawk? Surly you mean Hocks.
Hawk and hock sound exactly the same what the fuck
Ok try this one on for size. What about Maty Mauk
I don’t even know other pronunciations for these things
