Yes, we non-US say new-clear, not noo-clear.

The 'p' in 'raspberry' is only pronounced depending on where you come from - as is the 'l' in 'almond'.

I noticed that words taken from other languages into English are not always pronounced correctly. Since I often know the correct pronunciation in that foreign language, it is more difficult for me. 🙄

While I am sure there are dialectical differences, all the folks I grew up with north of Chicago, and half the folks here, do not pronounce the "L" in almond. As for "vittles", that's just slang.

I don’t agree with some answers, Australian pronunciation differs somewhat to the American.

I am from New Zealand - so some of our pronunciations are different in this quiz.
