    A herb, an ’erb…banana banahna…

    No one is “correct” just because he lives on one side or the other of an ocean.

    The development of English started to split in two directions over 400 years ago….NONE of us still speak the speech of Dr. Johnson…

    No reason for either side to follow the other … OR to think they’re the only ones who went in the right direction…

    Get over it.

    @Vegas ViperItalian-Americans eat lots of garlic. In Italy itself, you will find very little, if any, garlic in restaurant meals. The people of Italy generally feel that the breath and body odor from garlic leaves them socially undesirable.

    A further pun might include whether Earl means “an herb” as if he pronounces it without the H sound and means a plant with seeds, flowers and leaves for flavoring or with the H sound and involves a THIRD man into the discussion….

    Merriam-Webster prefers “bazzle.” Alternate pronunciations are BAY-zel or BAA-sell or BAY-sell. A you-tube source calls it BAY-zel, and I imagine you could look through Google sources till you dropped, and find differing opinions. I’ve observed that most people call it “BAY-zel.” However, I was originally taught to pronounce it BAZ-el (short a sound), as in “Basil Rathbone,” and that’s how I’ll pronounce it to the end of my days.There’s quite the discussion of this in
