Many tongues

Like everyone else I get drawn into some strange websites.  One last week offered the chance to hear the correct pronunciation of the word Lego (claiming the Danes say i very differently).  The site allows people in different countries to offer their take on words via an MP3 file, so builds up into a useful guide for learning languages.  Naturally I keyed in Deep Purple, but was disappointed to hear only English and American spoken.  So, here is the link, let’s hear the name spoken by as many different people / accents round the world as we can!  I was going to do Yorkshire (T’Deep Purple) but chickened out.

      Somebody else suggested trying to make an MP3 of his intro and adding it to the language site to confuse people!
