  • Tab-ram or Tay-brum

    How do you pronounce Martha Tabram's name?
    Thanks for your time,

    'Tabrum'. Us English have a tendency to clip syllables, but this might be more pronounced in the south of the UK. I'm sure that others will give you a different interpretation. Regional, and city accents can be diverse and very
    confusing,
    Cheers,
    Merv.
    Be nice to one another!

      It's somewhere between "Tab-ram" and "Tab-rum" with me.

        I've probably been wrong for years then, because I always thought "Taybr'm"

          Subconsciously, I can imagine a process where I tallied up the number of "[consonant]ab*-" words I knew and this nudged me towards "Tabrum".

          tablet, tabard, tabloid, tablature, taboo, tabular, tabulate, Tabitha

          versus

          table, tabor and tabes

          ...not that you hear the last two very often.

            Tay-brum or Taybr'm....usually the latter is how I pronounce it.

                I'm going by the majority of "tab*-" words, so it's "Tabrum" for me.

                  I agree with the Tab, followed by rím.

                    Yup. It's the US/UK thing I think. Tomayto versus tomahto.

                    I've always pronounced it to rhyme with a British Devonian tomato!

                        As in Long John Silver as portrayed by Robert Newton? The blueprint for all comic pirate accents ever since? No!

                          Come to think of it, it's more of a "r'm" than a "rum" with me, also.


                          What a r'm do!
