Punny Fun

An exchange on Facebook with my phonetics and phonology professor from college who teaches in the UK. (Boroughs in NYC refer to the 5 districts: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.)


Professor:
 A nail polish released in conjunction with one of the Shrek movies. N.B. many New Yorkers rhyme donkey with monkey, which at least from an orthographic perspective is not insane…


Me:
Which parts of NY? I’ve never heard anyone pronounce donkey that way in the 5 burros.
