Why is it nova sco[sh]ia when it’s sco[t]land
@wxcafe because it's latin
@wintgenstein no I mean I understand that it’s correct in Latin it’s just surprising to me that that’s how it’s pronounced. People don’t tend to respect Latin pronunciation too much
@wxcafe all (ok, most) *tia are pronounced like "shuh." silent t after o is only at the end of a word, and only sometimes
@wxcafe I find it uncomfortably close to nova squashia, and WHEre are the zucchini!
