Thanks for jumping in on this! Isn’t it interesting that we have certain sounds that we can’t seem to communicate to each other across language barriers? It’s funny that we can translate ideas, but not tonality. At least, it is to me.
I am listening to a podcast that is suggesting that Kiev is not actually pronounced, as I have been pronouncing it my entire life, “key-EV,” but is, in fact, something a little closer to “KEEV.” They then admitted that they were referencing the BBC pronunciation guide, and that they have no experience one way or the other. Does anyone have any answers about this? I’m curious.
I should now admit that I only added the cute dog gif to make you more inclined to read this post and then help me find this answer.
As my brother would say- /blushing.

Omigod, I wanna apologize to Jeremy Renner fans for his apearrance in that really rather rough sketch. I can do better, I promise.
Look, I’m absolutely smashed and watching History Detectives on PBS. I’m not at my best. I think we can all agree on that.
