    Re: The final "e"

    And let's not forget bath/Bath. I once made a British bassoonist cringe by pronouncing the city à l'américaine.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: The final "e"

    Using a short "a" (as in "cat") isn't just AmE pronunciation. It's exactly the kind of thing I was talking about when I mentioned BrE variants. People in the south-east of England would use a long "a" (like "ar" but without the rhotic "r"), but those from most of the north of England (and some of the south-west) would use the short "a".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
