I just moved to Va and they dont pronounce the 'r' here, especially if it comes at the end of a word. naw-fuk is how they say it here (south-central). I'm from Tn. and I say nor-foke, no 'l'.
Its a london ting :)
forgot that one (Nor-foke), which is pretty sad, cuz that's how I usually say it. Used to say Nor-folk when I first moved here, but after living here 22 years, I occasionally slip int Nor-fuk. Just can't get the hang of Naw-fuk though.
guess i should have allowed additional entries - who would have guessed there were so many ways to pronounce a 7 letter word.......
yes, you should have, because Norfolk Nebraska is pronounced Nor fork
post and learn.......
the right way!
In Mass we pronounce it somewhere between nor fook(like book)and nor fuk.The folk part kinda trails off in volume/enunciation which is typical of the Mass/New England accents.
I don't know how the pro-nounce it in Virginy.
Johnny, what part of Ole Virginny are you living in now?
the folks I know who've lived here all their life seem to prefer Naw-fuk
and the "right way" would be ? :)
I say NOR-FOLK
yep thc - that's the right way! :)
Usually Nor-folk or Nor-fuk.
Most of the sailors there pronounce in NOFUCK because hookers are hard to find there.
