Hey, Thor. Why do you pronounce "Also" as "Oso"? It makes me want to kill things. Where did that come from? It's not just a mispronunciation, it's an entirely new (and wrong) word.

Why?!?!?

Oso, love the podcast. Keep up the good work.

While we're on the subject of pronunciation, is there a reason you guys say kabalite warriors as "kabble-ite" instead of "cuh-BAL-ite"? I've always assumed that kabalites are based off the word "cabal", which dictionary.com defines as:

1. a small group of secret plotters, as against a government or person in authority.

2. the plots and schemes of such a group; intrigue.

Yikes my dudes, maybe it's mics not picking up on subtleties, maybe its their local dialect/accent, maybe its how GW pronounces things., maybe it's English being a funny language.

here's an example between cabal and Kabalite:

I have a guy in my local area who also says Oso. (I have to frequently mentally back up because I think he or Thor are saying "Oh so.") I thought it was an accent or dialect and was intrigued enough by it to ask a speech pathologist friend about it.

He said it was an uncommon but not rare speech pattern. (And pointed out a coworker of mine who I didn't realize also says it like that.)

@Haesuse - Must be my sexy Floridian accent.

@Blackfel - Your pronunciation is the English version of cabal, ours is the British. Why are a bunch of Yanks using the Brit pronunciation of a theory root for a made up word? I dunno - but that's my answer Wink

That video was very interesting. Emma pronounces "kabal" like cabal from the dictionary, then immediately proceeds to say "kabbleite" for the rest of the video.

Kabalite sounds very awkward if you pronounce it just like 'cabal' but with an -ite. The 'cobbleite' or 'cabbleite' pronunciation sounds much more natural.

while we are talking about pronunciations...
does "thor" sound like something a guy with a lisp would call himself after leg day at the gym?

There's an old joke like that.

The morning after an all-night party/orgy in Valhalla, the thunder God Thor wakes up and spots a naked valkyrie staggering by. He stands up, puffs out his chest, and says,
"Hey there. I'm Thor."
The valkyrie gives him a flat stare and replies,
"You're Thor? I'm tho thor I can hardly pith! “

The thunder god went for a ride
Upon his favorite filly.
"I'm Thor!" He cried,
The horse replied:
"You forgot your thaddle, thilly."
