Alright. I’m sick of people pronouncing the name Borat incorrectly. At first it didn’t bother me much, but now that the Borat movie is, well, kicking so much ass, everyone is talking about it and everyone is pronouncing the name incorrectly. It’s irritating, because it’s so easy to pronounce properly. Let’s take a look:
The common (and incorrect) pronunciation is “bo” as in Bo Derrick and “rat” as in sewer rat. Bo-rat. Considering that’s how the name is spelled, it’s not a real surprise that people are screwing it up.
However, if you listen to how Sascha Baron Cohen (the guy who plays Borat) pronounces the name, it’s “bo” as in Bo Derrick and “rot” as in link rot. Bo-rot.
It’s not hard, so get it right, media!0 People like this. Be the first!
