how do you write the common comparative phrasing "you say tomato, or i tom-AH-to?"
You just did it.
to-may-toe/ to-mah-toe, perhaps?
yes, if you spell the one phonetically, you must also spell the other one that way, or it makes no sense...
There's a recording label here in Australia called Tomayto Tomahto. Just, you know, so you know.
I read that as tomahto, tomahto.
I'm going to have to agree that spelling both phonetically is the way to go, since you can't guarantee if your audience has a particular accent or not.
biblesponge, just wondering ... how is it these two mates have only one toe between them?
Let's call the whole thing off!
I fail to see your point, sir.
Separate names with a comma.
