    Re: Pirates of the Caribbean, Say What?

    I say "Pirates of the Cara-bee-ann" but switch between the two with other stuffs.

    I think I've only heard WDC, and maybe even Walt himself, use "Pirates of the Cara-bee-ann".

    I used to say ca-ribby-an, until I was 14, and a couple of friends made fun of me for not knowing how to read the name correctly. Jerks.

    Pirates of the "Ca ribby ann" sounds like a cruise liner got plundered.

    When my sister was about 9 yo, she used to call it, "Pirates of the Carrots-Bean". Quite a vegtable friendly attraction it was, too!
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    Re: Pirates of the Caribbean, Say What?

    It really depends on the person since "Caribbean (the Disneyland way)" can really be spelled either "Carribean (with two "r's" and one "b")" or "Caribbean (with one "r" and two "b's")."

    So, if you spell it Carribean, it should naturally, when talked out, should should like CARRIB-ean.

    If you spell it Caribbean (like Disneyland's ride), when talked out, it should sound like Ca-rib-BEAN.

    Anyway works!

    Hate to break this to you, but there is one spelling, Caribbean, and only one spelling. One spelling, two pronunciations. Just like tomato.

    Somebody added "Carribean" to your copy, because it isn't on my brother's PC.

    Microsoft word.

    I agree the proper use of the word should be "Caribbean," BUT you can say it the other way as well on Microsoft Word and WordPerfect .

    It's one of those weird words.

    No, it isn't. Somebody added the improper spelling of "Carribean" to your computer's dictionary. You can say it either way, but ther eis but one way to spell it.

    Whatever. It can be either.

    This is good controversy though. What is the "real" way to say Caribbean?
