How are the following pronounced:
-John Innes (the surname, obviously :) )
-Clematis (CLEM- a -tis or clem- Ay- tis?)
-montana (as in the clematis, I thought it was like the state but was corrected to 'mont-ah-na' yesterday)
-dahlia (everyone in my family says 'Daahlia', like Somalia, but everyone else says 'day-leea').
These have been bugging me for a while, especially 'John Innes'. I was told that it was 'John Eye-nez' by a lady at the garden centre, but yesterday I overheard someone saying 'John 'Innez'.
