    I'm told that the proud residents of Berwick (in East Sussex on the south coast of England) pronounce it "Ber-wick", unlike those in Berwick-upon-Tweed (in Northumberland, and just 3 miles from the Scottish border) who pronounce their town's name "Berrick ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Strangely, nobody from Wooster, Ohio pronounces it war-sess-ter. I can't explain the phenomenon.
    I am not a teacher.
