I kept getting tripped up on the spelling for Niagara. I kept writing Niagra. I was convinced that it was right. Had to look that one up.

Maybe we should all just regress to the days of Shakespeare and use whatever spelling we damn well please. What's the advantage to formalizing spelling if we adjust it to please illiterates.

The way people pronounce Niagara hurts my ears. I always place the stress on the second A which is not pronounced at all by most speakers.

So ni-ah-GAH-ra? Is that actually the correct pronunciation? I've just always said Niag'ra, like everyone else.

That is not the way it is pronounced, Sulps. The word is not Spanish in origin, but probably Native American. Wikipedia gives this as the correct pronunciation: (/naɪˈæɡrə/). For most of us that rhymes with Vi-ag'-ra.

Not necessarily. I am ancient and neither know nor care about her. But I did know her dad was a country singer. So I assumed a city in the American south starting with N. There you go.

On the other hand, perhaps people just know some US cities that start with N - Nashville is hardly an obscure place.

You learn something new every day. I always thought calling it "Never Never Land" was a joke about the British habit of buying things on "hire purchase" also known as "The never never". Turns out JM Barrie really did call Peter Pan's home both Never Never Land and Never Never Never Land.

How is nantucket "limerick-friendly"? It is a clever way of getting the limerick clue in, but I associate limericks with Ireland and this clue kind of confused me.

Because it allows for good end-rhymes in limericks. And it's exceptionally commonly used in limericks. The word is very limerick-friendly.

Never in all my years of studying Japanese did I encounter 'Nippon' for 日本. I always assumed, as a consequence, that it was just a Western mispronunciation, having only encountered it in English language contexts. Not one of my textbooks or teachers at multiple different institutions (from primary school to university) ever said anything but 'Nihon'. Only after some investigation (I never really noticed it in Japan somehow) did I discover that Nippon is actually a considerably older and more established pronunciation, though one which is falling out of use now. Sources differ, but it seems a majority (60-70%) favour the use of 'Nihon'. Apparently the youth overwhelmingly now favour 'Nihon', but older Japanese still use 'Nippon'. A few years ago a member of the Diet attempted to introduce a bill to establish an official pronunciation, but it failed to get through, so both persist. In the end I'm mainly left curious as to why Australian Japanese curricula don't even mention the issue.

I'd be careful about that. He's an auror, you know. He'd have you in a full body-bind curse faster than you could say, "Expelliarmus!". :) (From a grandmother whose inner child loves the Potterverse.) BTW, have you actually read the books? They are much better than the movies.

I only had one left (that I couldn't figure out), and that's because I thought "Nazaret" was spelled with an "s" instead of a "z"... Maybe you can add both, as a correct answer?
