Lu-tenant or lef-tenant

Me and my sis always had and will have disagreements over the pronunciations of almost every word.And the one word we fight most about is stated above – Lieutenant . I blame it on the Brits for the lef-tenant part of the pronunciation. Interestingly , I was watching one of old favourites – Where Eagles Dare.

There comes a scene where Burton ( a British soldier ) repeatedly calls Eastwood ( an American mercenary )   by his rank. And the best part is where he pronounces it both ways- Lef-tenant and Lu-tenant. This was enough to give us ( me and my sis ) a chuckle.

Well , that said , “Where Eagles Dare ” is one of the best war-scene-extraction-sort of a movie. With dramatic moments that make you wonder what’s next , its a treat to watch.
