[LanX]: see soundfile https://en. wiktionary.org/ wiki/human# Pronunciation
[Your Mother]: Just Another Perl 'Acker.
[LanX]: I pronounce it 'juːmən'
[Your Mother]: Hey, let's not bring antisemitism into the conversation.
[LanX]: for centuries posh English speakers tried to approach French, that's where all the trouble starts
[Eily]: Just another Perl coeurs
[Eily]: (perl with hearts, 'Acker with a French accent is pronunced like coeurs)
[LanX]: IMHO 'ju' for 'u' happens in English where they can't pronounce the French u (or German )
[LanX]: and I'm sure I read that *hotel* used to be pronounced 'otel by the English upperclass
[Your Mother]: American English vowels are pretty lazy/mumbly in general.
