I first noticed a few years ago what seemed to be a realization that we were pronouncing the second month wrong. CNN and others made attempts at correction. I looked at the word and it seemed simple enough. It looks like feb ru ary. Three sylables easy to say. I practiced a few times and now I can say it. But if you listen many strugle with it. They say febuwarly feberary or febrrarey or they mumble something trying to hide that they don't know how to say it. Some just stick with febuary. Maybe they're too busy to slow down and look at the word. I kind of like words. One that used to bother me was when people said often as in off ten. I thought it was wrong but words change with time so it's likely just as good as offen. Now we gots axed for asked and in time that will likely be correct. The following is from Wikipedia and you can't argue with that can you? Many people pronounce the 'ru' of "February" /juː/ ( listen) you rather than /ruː/ roo, as if it were spelled "Feb-u-ary". This comes about by analogy with "January" (which ends in "-uary" but not "-ruary"); as well as by a dissimilation effect whereby having two "r"s close to each other causes one to change for ease of pronunciation. The Scots language names for the month are Feberwary and Februar, the latter usually pronounced with a long "ay" in the first syllable. What up dudes?
