I have always been a Gonda-la person
I pronounce it GONE-dough-la
Wait, I think I voted wrong.
I say Gondo-la with a long o sound in the middle. Emphasis on Gon, not do. So I guess "GON-dola.
Not Gonda-la with an a sound in the middle.
Might correlate with where someone grew up. East coast, midwest or west coast. I see the same difference in how people pronounce the word 'OFTEN'. Silent T or not?
I say the T in often.
Gahn duh la
My Grandparents from Iowa did too. I grew up in California and nobody I knew did. Silent in AZ for the most part as well.
We live in Iowa and I always say the t in often. I didn’t know it was a thing not to lol
I say gon-duh-luh
It seems simple English varies across the country. I learned for instance that in Boston if a word doesn't have an R in it then you must add it, such as Sofer instead of Sofa. If a word has an R in it then you remove it such as Cah instead of Car.
Of course I'm in the minority here in how to pronounce Gone-Dole-La
I guess that's how I say it too.
I’d pronounce an Itialian water taxi as Gon-dole-a
But I’d think the Disney Skyway vehicle would be Gond-a-la
I pronounce it "cable car".
I offen say gondulla
It can and does vary if it is said before or after drinking adult beverages.
Boy I had to think about that one. I never thought about how I pronounce it.
My computer pronounced it Gon-doh-la. Long O. Me too.
