Please Pronouce Paradise Properly Aug. 19th, 2006 @ 12:18 AM Reply

So I'm in a bitchy mood and have decided to teach the BBS on How To Not Look Like A Stupid Fucking Tourist 101

I live in the Cayman Islands. It is made of three islands, Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.

It is NOT The Grand Cayman.
That would be the equivalent to saying 'the America'

It is NOT The Caymans.
That would be the equivalent to saying 'the Uniteds'

What IS acceptable however is, the Cayman Islands, or simply Cayman.

Ex. I went on a very nice vacation to the Cayman Islands.
or I went on a very nice vacation to Cayman.

Now I know the probability of any of you requiring this knowledge is less than 1%, but for that single weatherman, or Cruise Ship Passenger, please keep it. All the locals are laughing at you behind your back, and then we jack up the price $20 because we know you don't know any better.

Also both kay-MAN and KAY-min will work.

You think this is about pronounciation?

I think we need "reading 101" before something THIS massively complicated.

Well, if all the people there are assholes like you then I just won't ever go. And when i refer to them i'll refer to them wrong to piss you off. Too bad because my family was planning on going to The Caymans.

Yeah, but the body is more concerned with, what is called, uh... tip of my tongue...

Diction?

Maybe.

Is that even a word?

Yeah, diction is a word, but I think grammar is the more appropriate word. Diction has to do with sentence structure and word choice.

Possibly. See, the problem herein is the choice of words being used in naming The Cayman Islands. Seeing as how "The Americas" is a perfectly grammatically sound way of saying something, but it doesnt apply to what you MEAN, well, is it an issue of grammar, culture... or...

My head isn't in the right mindset for this, hah.

:D

Me and Caymania are pretty tight. I know someone who went there more than once, for some time occasionally.

More than one person, actually. That make us practically family.

Caymania is good enough for me.

Also, I'm tired of the palm fronds you're using for fanning. I want gold ones that play the Furniture One jingle as you move them.
