ambulance – how do you say it?

AMBulance

or

ambuLANCE

??

I say AMBulance. Always have. Whenever I hear someone saying ambuLANCE, it sounds really strange to my ears.

I heard two people talking today & it took me a minute to figure out what they were talking about because they were saying ambuLANCE and it sounded so foreign to me.

  1. I am with you. I hate it when people put the emPHASis on the wrong syl-A-ble!!!

  2. I’m definitely an AMBulance kind of guy myself…

  3. It’s not a matter of taste or opinion. Only subliterates would mispronounce it the way your coworkers were.
