I was listening to the radio in the car the other day, and I heard a commercial for the National Association of Realtors. Except they didn’t say it that way. Not the way I say realtor. Not the way anyone I know says realtor. You know, like realter. Kind of. Anyway, no. The guy on the radio announcing the official name of the organization over and over again pronounced it real-tor. Over and over again. Tor. Like the rock formation. Or the publishing company. I assume that’s how it’s pronounced. Tor. Like or. Four. Bore. Core. If tor is pronounced “ter”, then I’m just going to keep saying it the wrong way ’cause that’s ridiculous. But when it’s at the end of a word? And that word is realtor? Please. Real-tor. As if there are fake tors out there somewhere.
Reminds me of these guys.
