The kind of people who I've heard justify using the word 'panino' in English are absolutely the worst people.

As you get to grips with German pronunciation don't ever be that person who insists on pronouncing it correctly when ordering a pint of Löwenbräu in an English pub.

To be honest anyone in this country ordering a Panino would be deserving of a slap

Neither Ackroyd nor Landis are scientists, if Bob8 had written it, then it would have been correct "I have seen the absorption of light"

Not sure it fits your remit, but I know that Blackpool and Dublin basically means the same thing.

i once heard somebody in a butcher's shop in Southwell - Nottinghamshire's little known gem - ask whether it was 'South-well' or 'Suthull'.  "Depends if you're from the posh end of town" came the amusing if not entirely helpful reply from the shopkeeper!  I lived just outside it for about three years and never found a definitive answer!

it's definitely South-well , I know this because a posh lad at the local rugby club tried to correct my pronunciation to Suthull

Suthull. I got battered there for 78 minutes. I swung one decent punch over in the 79th and got sent off. 

Never got on wi Notts..... 1984 n'all that.

It is believed by some that the word 'penguin' derives from the Welsh pen-gwyn.

Pen-gwyn means white head.

Penguins do not have white heads.
