I did get the idea from other sites, but made most of them up myself. Didn't know they were called Fractured Quizzes - but now I do, so I've changed the title!

Not speaking English as a first language, these are HARD. Especially cause I seldom or never heard anybody pronounce "Doctor Seuss" (I got as far as Doctor Who?). Happy with my 13/18 even though it was just 40%.

Buck spun he and Mow bead hick seemed a little out of place on a 'famous people' quiz. The first I guess I can forgive, since he is so heavily anthropomorphized, but the white whale?

Loved this one. Thanks. We must have different accents. I noticed a couple of the names which ended in an "a" were given clues which ended in the "er" sound which in my accent is more of an "uh" sound. I say Michelle Obam-uh rather than Obam-er (er as in the ending of Hitler) and I say Nelson Mandel-uh, rather than your Mandel-er.

Yes, for people with non-rhotic accents like myself, the -er suffix sounds identical to the 'uh' sound. :)

I had never heard of a non-rhotic accent, which led me to the Wikipedia page on Rhoticity in English. It was interesting and explained when, where, and how a lot of our accent changes came about - at least regarding the letter r. Thank you. (Despite my being American, my accent is older, but lower class.)

That's a battle Seuss himself gave up on long, long ago. He reportedly came around to the Anglicized pronunciation of it anyway, as it was evocative of Mother Goose.

How on earth do you guys pronounce cleopatra?? (like colorpetra? or clearpetra?) What accent is that (seriously, not trying to be rude, literally wondering about the accent), I got it (how could you not with it ending in petra), but it seems so be the one most distant from its original. Cull cant sound like cle, not to me anyway.

Maybe make it Clay owe pet Ra?
