A monolog

No, it’s not spelled that way in American? Why not?

I was wondering if maybe the spelling choice has to do with whether the last part is pronounced as “log” to rhyme with “bog”, “fog” and “cog” or as “logue” as in “rogue”, and er, “rogue”. (If anyone knows of any other words that rhyme with “rogue” please do mention them. My brain is all shook up from my sneezing all day today.) I ask because I tend to pronounce travelogue (perhaps wrongly) to rhyme with rogue, but dialogue to rhyme with bog. Also, does it say something about my readers that my last post got more comments than any other one, as far as I can remember? Was it the pronunciation issue or the serendipity of finding something forgotten?

Oh and before you go, if for some reason you don’t follow Cute Overload, do go and look at this post and this one. I want me some of that fertiliser!!! Also, maybe I should have been a baby orangutan. Or something.

  1. How about “brogue”? But don’t ask me about pronunciation… I learned a lot of words by reading them, and have some pretty funny butcherings of them. 😉

  2. Andrea beat me to brogue, but how about vogue, Minogue…as in Kylie, sorry that’s not what you meant was it?!…and…hmmm…can’t think of any others!

  3. cuteoverload is the best!

  4. Vogue is about all I could think of without pulling up the on-line rhyming dictionary.
