John Green challenges you to pronounce these 79 words
Interesting that Green picks up where Pronunciation Book left off. Iiiiinteresting.
Thank your lucky stars for John Green.
His video for Mental Floss clues the uninitiated in on how to correctly say things like Benedict Cumberbatch, nuclear, Asperger’s syndrome, and caramel. A couple of grammar notes are peppered in for good measure.
Interesting that Green picks up where Pronunciation Book left off! We caught him tweeting about the webseries before we launched our own theory, that it’s building hype for a Battlestar reboot. We know ProBook is a marketing campaign for something, but who knows. Could it be a film version of Green’s young-adult novel The Fault in Our Stars? Or a Vlogbrothers TV series?
We’ll let you know in about a month. In the meantime, let the conspiracies fly.
