CROCHET.
Now, I've always said and heard it as:

crow-SHAY. (and the crow part is more of a creh than crow) (didn't we

call
that the schwaa sound in phonics?)

Here in TN, they say:

CROW-shay.

Which way do YOU say it?
Hugs,
Noreen

ever the one to come up with discussions, grin!

Well, over on this side of the pond it's CROW-shay for us commoners,
while the upper class tend more towards CRAIR-shay. I call it crash-
s**t when it all gets too tangled ;-))

Back home in Illinois its "cro-SHAY", here in Texas I hear it both
ways and it is usually age-dependent - older folks call it CROWshay,
younger ones (like me, decrepit tho I am getting) call it croSHAY.

However, I have a nephew who is 6'4" and quite adorable who CROWshays
thread doilies. His g'gma taught him, and she CROWshayed, donchaknow.

It's crow-shay for me and I've never heard it pronounced any other way.

Crow-SHAY is how I say it, too, Noreen, and so does my mother. (She is from
Australia)
