Okay, can you all help with a friendly marital debate? <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

I've been pronouncing it "tah-RO" my whole life, but my wife (with an MFA in Creative Writing ;-) thought it might be "TAR-o". Any thoughts?

I jokingly suggested that it may depend on what side of the metaphysical tracks you are from, and that maybe it should really be pronounced "TAR-rot" (pronouncing the last 't' like "carrot"). But then, of course, she said that's actually how John Lennon did pronounce it... :music: I don't believe in tarrot... :music: So that just confused things. lol

Then, of course there's the whole 'pot-A-to / pot-AH-to' clause. So maybe we should call the whole thing off... <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Not counting the Liverpool version, does anyone know the 'prefered' North American pronunciation? <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Good Question Michael!

I believe the correct pronounciation is

tair-oh

I have real fun with many words, being Canadian - even spelling is hilarious - I usually use American spelling online since the majority of the readers would think I had a spelling deficit if I didn't <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

e.g. we spell behavior as behaviour, and so on.

I have always said it Tair-oh but that is the way I was taught to say it.
