    Dictionary pronunciation has no "n" in it. Robin is an asshole. Period.

    Funny how a billionaire and a world traveler are both unable to pronounce Sao Paulo.

    ...because Americans are big babies who can't stretch their tongues to articulate a foreign language.

    You would not believe how many Americans I know who can't say the words "beige," "bon jour" or anything with that "zzzh" sound.

    "Sao," pronounced, as was pointed out by another poster in this thread, is "sow" (like the pig).

    How hard is that?

    they're just lazy.

    It's lazy speech.

    That's because the colonial power in Brazil was not Spain, but Portugal.
