English Signs in Foreign Locales

Just in from my favourite grammarian.

Pertinent post-script: Letter in the September Atlantic Monthly commenting on Bernard-Henri Lévy's articles on the States. The writer is
"A farm boy from eastern Washington, where we all know that it is pronounced sort of like 'Wanatchee' but spelled definitely like 'Wenatchee.'

I'm reminded [he concludes] of Mark Twain's comment that 'foreigners pronounce better than they spell.'"
