Weatherman Nails Pronunciation of Europe’s Longest Place Name

Weatherman Nails Pronunciation of Europe’s Longest Place Name Without Skipping a Beat

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is more than a mouthful -- but that didn't stop Channel 4 presenter Liam Dutton from expertly rattling off the long name of the small Welsh community without any hesitation during a recent weather report.

Check the video at the link, the weatherman does an awesome job with the name.

Andy? Opinions of the pronunciation? big_smile

I just watched that video and was coming here to ask Andy about the pronunciation!

Added later 40 seconds:
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch  - pronounced "UK"

Yeah, pretty much perfect.

Generally, people only pronounce it all to 'show off' or appear smartass.  Most references to it shorten to Llanfair P G.

And I have been there and its a crappy little village. Avoid wink
