I was told it's cure a sow- to fix a sick pig.
I say it almost like rincewind except instead of Kur--more like Coor (as in Coors beer!).Not quite. The first syllable is indeed CURE.
Not quite. The first syllable is indeed CURE.Absolutely ^ .... and rather easy to remember once you know how to say it.
So it really is CURE - AH- SOW (rhymes with cow).
I asked my mother this the other day b/c Curaçao isn't too far from my parents' birthplace (Guyana)I was born and raised in Curacao and I still live here. So I'm pretty sure I know the pronunciation. It is CURE-AH-SOW (like COW)....
She said it's pronounced: Cure-uh-sow (rhyming with show, not cow) ...I was definitely pronouncing it the way that rhymes with cow.
And where do all these people live again? Right. In Guyana.And we speak Portuguese in Guyana so what's your point?
So, not here....
