    Canadians , the queen's bitches

    The correct pronunciation coming from the race that speeks kurrect inglish ( the oirish btw)

    It is Zed Or Ex




    F1 rules NASCAR is like dumping a box of Fruit Loops in the toilet and watching them all swirl around when flushed. Add some screaming redneck to announce the event and you could sell tickets.

    90% of the time I refer to it as my ZEE ARE EX. Calling it a WRECKS in unassuming company sounds GHay

    Re: How do you say ZRX?

    When non-motorcycle folk ask - it's a Kawasaki,( I sometimes add it's a 1200 )



    If the person asking is on a bike, it is a ZRX1200 - either they know it or don't , if they do , usually it becomes a torque talk

    If they don't know it, I show the underseat storage - most dig it

    ......I don't know what that language is..

    I guess it pretty much comes down to Dialect.....?

    People in neighbouring towns (as close as 10~ 20 miles away) from me speak / pronounce things differently from me....

    I was born in Belfast....but have lived in Lisburn since 1968....(Belfast is only 9 miles down the road from me...but their accent is much "harder" than mine...

    People in Ballymoney (where Joey Dunlop..,Robert.,Michael etc are from ) speak with an almost Scottish accent and they are only 40 miles from me...

    "Over the border" and it's different still.....

    But by and large we pronounce 'Z' as Zed....,'R' as Our/Or....,and ....X as Ex

    Bee Gee (as in the BeeGee's) Wells.

    Have a listen to my accent on those little Youtube videos I put up......(a wee bit like Jonathan Rea......he is from Ballyclare (15/20 miles from me..)

    But "R" is Definitely not 'are' ..!! (Last man I heard speak like that was 'Long John Silver.!)

    And Z is NOT Zee.!

    In my neck of the woods you'd get hauled in if you came out with that..!

    And if you uttered "Prolly"...????., Well there would be an inquest.!!!

    Re: How do you say ZRX?

    The UK baffles me when it comes to this, for such a small land mass the accents are so diverse that sometime I am not sure if they are still speaking English.

    As opposed to Australia, where you can go 5000kms away and the accent is almost identical. An Aussie could pick the subtle differences but I doubt people from another country could.

    Then you have the US, being a fairly similar size to Australia and the differences in accents is again VERY diverse, from the Bawston accent to southern drawl and then the Mississippi twang with the Creole/French influences.

    On a side note, a good mate of mine is Indian and he went home recently (Rajisthan), he said he could drive for an hour and be in a village that he couldnt understand what they were saying!!!!
