Pronounce away!

My wife and I went to Wingers restaurant last night, their specialty dessert is asphault pie. After 5 years of marraige I learned that my wife says this word totally differently than I do. She’s from New Zealand so that may explain the difference.

After we had settled the “correct” way to say this word, some new people sat in the booth behind us and had the same conversation! Except they introduced a totally new variant that neither of us had heard before.

So is it:

Ass-fault
ash-fault
or
Az-fault

Ass-fault.

Bitumen.

ps - Az-fault.

pps - While we’re at it ‘Aussie’ is “Ozzy” not “awsee”.

At least you didn’t have fish and chips.

Asz-fault

Ass-fault

I’ll dissent with my countryman and say ash-fault.

Ass-fault. Should have made this a poll.

Ass-fault

I don’t even know what the hell you are talking about. This is a pie made of pseudo gravel or something?

Ass-fault.

“Az-fault” I can understand, but I’ve never heard it pronounced “ash-fault” before.

Yeah, that one just sounds like someone who has trouble with their ph’s.

A lot of people in the UK pronounce it ash-falt.

Actually in the UK ass-falt is more common.
