Dorade...

dorade traduction dorade définition dorade dictionnaire

Forecastle...

forecastle - definition of forecastle by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

Funnily enough this is how i pronounce them, but i guess it all comes down to which bastardised form of English you use.....

Re: How do you pronounce "Dorade"

Agree with " door aid " although it tends to come out as " de raid ".

Re: How do you pronounce "Dorade"

That reminds me of a story a guy from Norfolk, VA told me about the local high school cheerleaders chant at the football games:

"We don't drink! We don't smoke! Norfolk! Norfolk! Norfolk!"
