I say stop being lazy and learn to pronounce it correctly.

*edit* for what it's worth, I've been mispronouncing it too. But not anymore...
Do you pronounce Garrand, garRAND which is common here but the Canadian builder of that rifle is pronounced gearAND

Don't be a "lazy" hypocrite pronounce it like a Canadian

By your statement you would need to learn over 8% proper pronunciation of all English words that come from Greek words as 1 in 12 English words are Greek and pronounced way different than by your statement, how they should be. Plus they really do sound better in Greek, well most

1 of every 12 words in the English language come from Greek. They are not pronounced the same as they are in Greek just like Lapua is pronounced different here.

I don't think we should all start pronouncing Lapua as it is in Finnish anymore than we should start pronouncing Greek based words as they would be in Greece
That was my point

Thus the reason why I placed the emoji after my statement. Sheesh!

Except that Lapua is a proper noun.

Unless you also believe that pronouncing the name 'Alexandre Dumas' should be pronounced in a similarly ignorant manner.

So the song goes but I don't think I've ever heard anyone call it a toe-mah-toe in real life.

So all Greek proper names should be pronounced as in the Greek language as Lapua is pronounced in the Finnish language?

Wouldn't that therefore apply to all languages?

If you pronounce it as we do asking a clerk if they carry Lapua brass he will understand you.
If you pronounce it as the rep in the video states the clerk will not know what you are talking about.
Language communicates thoughts and we use the pronunciation that communicates not shows we are pretentious arrogant know it alls there to enlighten those inferior to us

If you disagree we shall just have to agree to disagree and of course you will remain wrong


IMO

If the Lapua sales reps for the product would pronounce the name of their product correctly, then it wouldn't be of issue.

And I would still be right.

I grew up knowing that pronunciation sometimes depends on location since I grew up near a small town in Texas called, "Paluh-STEEN" but spelled correctly as "Palestine".
Ruidoso, NM. pronounced Roo-i-doe-so in Ruidoso. pronounced Ree-uh-doe-so elsewhere in NM. it means noisy. I can see Riudosu > riotous, but the spelling does not match

Thoreau, NM: "Practically all residents pronounce the town's name like "thuh-ROO" (similar to "through" or "threw") and not like "thorough" or "throw." A history of the town was compiled by local author Roxanne Trout Heath in her book Thoreau, Where the Trails Cross!, published in 1982, where she states that the town was named for Henry David Thoreau." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thoreau,_New_Mexico

The fact that someone mispronounces a name is irrelevant, it happens all the time. However, when someone from the organization gives the proper enunciation, out of respect, you should start saying it the proper way. Or is that too much courtesy to ask for Woofman?

BTW, it's {Guh-rand}... the NRA asked one time. Out of respect, they wanted to enunciate it correctly...

Yeah...so when all those idiots that can't say Oregon or Makarov or whatever properly get that right, I'll start worrying about how to say some Finnish place name that I never really use.
