i do. 

most people have accents. 
I'm talking about the accents where your pronunciation of certain words will cause you to lose on WOF.


I do have an accent and I don't always speak proper English socially.

I make myself speak proper English in professional and public settings tho, so I would say the G if I was on national tv.

I still feel like their response was really extreme tho.

Bunny I have to agree.....even if the woman said lasagna like la-sag-nee they still wouldn't give it to her.  I watched WoF with my gramma since I was little.....you have to pronounce it right.
I would not give it to them if the puzzles were
 Trimming the Christmas Tree
 Rinsing the dishes
 
and they answered
 
Trimming the chrimuh tree
or
wrinching the dishes
*Makes a note to remind mother to NOT participate in WOF*
 
I still don't get it based on this point. She asked for the G so she knew it was there. It's her pronounciation that got her disqualified?

Again....it sucks but she knew the G was there.....just say it with the G.  That's what the phrase is....don't matter how it sound when u sing it.  Even the lyrics say "Seven swans a swimming". I watched the vid and she said it with a hard "N". Just because you're southern don't mean u don't know how to pronounce a "G". Why not say it in the most enunciated way possible to ensure the win? *shrugs* I've seen episodes where folks will damn near sound it out to make sure they get it.
 
 
not going hard.....i'm just sayin'.  Read exactly what the phrase says phonetically and get your money.

so what if someone has a strong British accent and does not pronounce the words the way we do in America.  Are they DQ'd?  If so, why even have people on here with accents.
