    Sta-beh Sta-beh, for a more northern England slant on it.

    Being from Glasgow (In Scotland) we get plenty of genuine stah-bay stah-bay in real life. I think the "ay" noises are part of our dialect.

    Here's a comedian doing a decent impersonation of a 'ned' (Chav if you're English)

    Haha, that's great! (makes me sentimental about my days as an exchange student in Glasgow).

    Anohoo, sorry for our derailing Jobrox. Those videos are in deed very nice, and I second the motion that you should do a sixth (and seventh, or even eight, right? ) "W" called "WvW(vW)".

    Btw, since those are youtube videos, you can imbed them here in forum posts like so:

    [ youtube ] 1a33cCQWyR4 [ /youtube ] but without the spaces, which gives:

    You know you've touched deeply by Glasgow when 'sentimental' is the feeling that video invoked!!

    Yeah sorry Jobrox, derails happen often around here - but they usually get back on track before too long!

    I guess melee and zealot are more common in US english? I didn't realize they were that uncommon. They're on the news about every night, what with riots and religious zealots all over the world! Not that I watch TV news anymore.

    I've heard some really weird ones... I'm never sure if I'm allowed to make fun of them since English pronounce things any which way they please. The guys on yogscast said "in VEN shry" for inventory (US pronunciation IN ven tor e). I heard one guy say "a LIG en ment" for alignment (US pronounciation a LINE ment). I don't know if they're bad speakers or from another country!

    And then you have monsters from mythology that no one knows have a historical precedent, like apparently Anet and golems. Almost every monster in GW has a correct [edit: or at least accepted] pronunciation... not very many are original creations.

    Hey Jobrox, at least the derailment is getting your videos plenty of views!

    Edit: So I just found a third example of attribute. I checked the Oxford English Dictionary British pronunciations, and all three of my examples, the vloggers are pronouncing them wrong. INventory, aLINement, and ATtribute. Not aTRIBute.

    Edit 2: And another british dude mispronouncing seraph. I'm very disappointed in people's vocabulary.

    AHHHHHHHHHH!
