@Mame,
It is, but it's a less common term. Handcarts are made of wood because they're old. Wheelbarrows can be quite modern, rubber wheels, carbon fibre body that sort of thing. Handcarts aren't like that, they're not modern, if anything they predate wheelbarrows.

Think of the scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the wooden cart that they are bringing the dead out to.

@Mame,
We normally pronounced it libree.

Actually it's a bit like Tottenham being pronounced Tottnam.

Actually in both cases we do pronounce it library and Tottenham but we run the syllables together and don't enunciate them so it sounds like libree and Tottnam.

@izzythepush,
It was just an affront for a person who works at a library to pronounce it liberry. Like when someone says "should of" instead of 'should have'. Or "me and him went to the store". It's an assault on my ears Smile

@Mame,
Do you know why they're doing it? Are they trying to be funny like the hilarious co worker who says what can I do you for, instead of saying what can I do for you?

If that's the case then should should enjoy the joke and laugh like a drain, because the best gags are those that put your ******* teeth on edge.

I have a friend...in-law, actually...who always worries about getting Poison Ivory.

He is not trying to be funny...he just thinks that is what is being said.

50 years away from England...and I still get pissed when I hear most Americans speak of Buckingham Palace...or Lincolnshire. Almost as bad as the Americans who speak of New Orleeens.

Funny thing - I worked with a woman in the library who pronounced it 'liberry", can you believe that?

Now, that would make for a cute bookstore cafe name, Liberry.


I always wanted to open a bar...pub, actually...with a sign showing a Dragon on one side and a donkey on the other. I'd call it the Dragon Ass pub.

@Mame,
I have always said 'liberry'. I also don't pronounce the D in Wednesday.

It is interesting to see the origin of Hell in a Handwhatever

@bobsal u1553115,
How revealing, I would have never guessed it! But, it does make sense, a lot of sense!

Trump's big lie that the election was stolen is merely a red herring to distract from his own attempt to overthrow the election by cheating. One of the major techniques fascists use is to play the victim as a cover and justify aggressive maneuvers to undermine institutions.
