Well if you put a T in from of hems them it is Thems with the the sound. I got in an argument that it certainly wasn't pronounced stateside like it was spelled Thames with a th sound and long a.

And while we're at it, we Americans are repossessing the "r" in "arse". It doesn't belong there, and we need it at the end of words like "far" and "car", where you don't use it.

If you have any complaints, keep them to yourselves. We can't be arse'd.

You do.

Everyone else in the world pronounces it "Thaymes" which of course is the correct pronunciation. It makes me proud that although the English language originated with the Poms, it was only perfected with the advent of Australian English.

Nobody with any education pronounces it "Thaymes", which is why Australians pronounce it "Thaymes".

Yes. "Loo Baroo" is a similar mispronunciation.

I wonder how they pronounce the name "Cholmondeley?"

As Oscar Wilde noted, the British and Americans are two peoples divided by a common language. If it wasn't Oscar, then it should have been.
