Pronunciation of "Fedr"

#30
Yep. George Dubya Bush was a prescient president. His best work was foreshadowing the idiocracy.
Roff-uh Nedoll is a real good Athalete.
If you have a question about real estate....aks a realetor. Or visit the liberry.
YOLO, but, be careful, expecially these days, what with cameras everywhere, and like, so-chill media.
Gurl.
Dood.
Supposably.
Irregardless of the fakeness of the noose, I am gunna still watch a good mix of cnn and faux news.

The English short 'e' pronunciation is correct because that's what he prefers in English.

When you listen to Swiss German commentators, it's a vastly different pronunciation.

(I told you Baaarnaby would get shorn! And Mal was the bigger hypocrite by far!)

I usually say "fedr"

Sometimes much faster, like "fedr".

So disappointed about Barnaby :(
At least he was funny. Now he'll just be replaced by some faceless man.

In Swiss German it does sound like Fee derrehh. Reminds me of the way wilander pronounces Eedbeargh, in Svedish. I always liked the South Effrrigen Lord cliffy Drysdale's way of pronouncing eedbewg.
Back to RF...
I am Surprised the Frenchies do not say rozhay fedèré, and they say fedair air....which sounds more Spanish.
French Canadians at the dépanneur prolly go avec Fedeureur.
Non rhotic Anglo: fedra
Murican: fedr fer shur.
Portuguese/Italiano/español: fédérérrrr.
Czech-Slovak, Indo-Pak and Serbo-Hrvatski: Federer. I think these guys have it right.
