Ok.....I know silly question.....but how do you pronounce Latakia.
Lat·a·ki·a [lat-uh-kee-uh or, lah-tah-kee-ah]
Like if you went to go buy a car from Asia and the dealership had "a lotta Kia but not as many Toyota"
I pronounce it "Kommunwelth"
That's funny, I always thought it was pronounced "odd-de-see".
Still prefer the pronounciation given the last time we talked about latakia -"dog-vomit!" - or perhaps that was actually its botanical name.
That is great.....
This is one thing I really love about PSF. You take the time to answer every question so politely, no matter how basic. This particular question couldn't be more timely as I was telling my girlfriend last night I wasn't sure how Latakia is pronounced.
(used to say "la TAKE e uh")
Here's a video to show to your girlfriend... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ClZv8q8vVwA&NR=1
Not often I get a "semi" hearing Latakia pronounced.............. :lol: :lol:
