Description - You Say Tomato by R.W. Jackson

Ever wonder if "vase" is pronounced VASE or VAHZ? If "Pulitzer" is PYOO-lit-zer or PULL-it-ser? If "niche" is NITCH or NEESH? Whether you're an articulation stickler or (like the rest of us) insecure with pronunciation, R. W. Jackson's You Say Tomato is sure to tickle and inform. With subtle, acerbic repartee, Jackson has created a diabolically funny dictionary of words that, as he gleefully points out, even our highest officials grapple with. Are you among the millions who cringe when George W. Bush pronounces "nuclear" as NOOK-lar? Are those TV news reporters correct when they say SAW-di Arabia? (It's SOW-di, right?) How can they be so nay-EEV? Nothing is sacred with Jackson as lexicophrapher. He trains his sardonic sights on everything from political correctness to pop music, corporate culture to foreign policy, reality shows to the right wing. Prepare yourself for a wickedly irreverent reading experience!
