How do you pronounce "Ardour": US English version
At the risk of seeming trivial, I have been noticing that podcasters in the US tend to say something like "ar-DEW-er". I had just assumed that "Ardour" was the international spelling of "ardor", and have pronounced it accordingly. I am guessing this is how Canadians would say it. I am wondering if Paul has a preference, and if any podcasts exist of him saying it? I could not turn anything up on Google.
That said, in the spirit of open source, I think people should pronounce it any way they want. There are a _lot_ of variants of Ubuntu. But I would hate for an American pronounciation to be based on confusion about that "u" that we leave out when we write words like ardor, color, and endeavor.
