The Rancho Vignola Fall Harvest Sale was this weekend, and on Friday Brian and I were treated to some trail mix and chocolaty treats. While we were busy stuffing our faces I asked Brian how he said the word almond…”there is only one way” is what I’m pretty sure he said, but I informed him that no, there is another, more controversial way to pronounce it.
Almond, but omit the L…so like Aumond. I for the record do not say it this way but I wanted to stir the pot which is why I brought it up, we started looking up the pronunciation of the word and I found that this is actually a controversial subject, there is even an ‘Almond Project’ from the University of California.
The only person I’ve ever heard say ‘Aumond’ was my future mother in law, and her response when told her that was crazy was that we don’t pronounce the L in salmon…so she does have a point. But in all fairness, the dictionary says that it can be pronounced both ways.
How do you say almond?
