Okay, it is neither Blizz'ard, as in snowstorm, nor Blizzard' with accent on second syllable. That was common pronunciation in the 70's and sounds much cooler than plan old Blizzard. So it is Blitz'ard? Got to practice that as I have a pair of Titan 8.2's.
The word I have trouble with is Provelone. My local deli refuses to pronounce the last e. But the work is Italian, no? So it should be Provelon'ne, shouldn't it? LewBob
