Sort of like church latin and non church latin. I forget what non-church is called. I'm probably just imagining Ciceronian, since the word Cicero is used as an example. May it's just called latin. I had four years of the church type, which I highly forget.
osso, this is an interesting article on Anglization (or Anglisation, if you prefer) but I still don't understand why in the dickens Livorno would be called Leghorn. Unless they ignored the people while stealing their chickens.
Totally agree, Roboida, even though I've never reckoned the tomato to be a fruit. I know all about that La Pomme D'Amour love apple crap (pardon my French) but I still say if something grows in my veggie patch it's a veggie, unless it's a slug or a snake.
And as for the world bein' round, don't even get me started on that rubbish.

As for sandwich…we in New Jersey definitely say sangwich or sangwitch.
Nobody here in New Jersey (‘cepting me) ever pronounces the “p” in raspberry.
I know several people here who pronounce Wednesday like it is spelled.
The leghorn, btw, is commonly known as Italian ("Italiener") in German.
(Livorno is "Livorno".)

Mine was a play on deo gratias - I've got to stop the playing, I'm sort of manic after being in a total down dump for many days. Ordinarily, I'd just say gratias, as say, a person on the street in old Rome.
