  1. Quínoa o Quinóa… We pronunciate it like that in south America. The pronunciation the woman is using, sounds like an American trying to spell it. It’s wrong.
    The rest i don’t know.

    That’s all.

  2. What about poke? Everyone outside of Hawaii like the mainland US and Europe pronounce it as pokey when it is pronounced po-keh.

  3. Mojo got gyro wrong. Gyro is the root word for gyroscope, meaning, to turn. Yeerow is not correct. It’s just pretentious.

  4. There used to be a restaurant in Alexandria, VA called Pho King.

    Anyone who knew how “pho” was really pronounced understood what a brilliant name that was.

  5. “A-sa-ee” okay then, I’ll try to remember that.

    IKR, where did “sherbert” come from?

    I know how to say espresso, quinoa and Worcestershire sauce

    “Brus-ketta”?! whaaaaaaaaaaaa- yeah I thought it was “bru-shetta”

    “Si-racha”?! I heard it like “ser-acha” too….??? MY LIFE IS A LI-

    “Yee-ro”?! I used to think it was pronounced like “gy-ro” too 😛

    I never heard of #4 and I would’ve said it like “fo” too

    “Nocky”… I always thought it was “gin-no-kee” like Curious George
