Bryde's whale. Strange new spelling.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bryde's_whale

From the article:

 

Bryde's whale (/ˈbrʊdəz/ BRUU-dəz Brooder's),

 

So kind of a phonetic misunderstanding.

Bryde is a Norwegian(?) and pronounced similar to bruda.

Yes - the names are interchangeable.

Same species.

We should not go around changing spellings willy-nilly to assist us ignorant Yanks.

 

I never knew how to pronounce Gouda cheese properly until I went to Japan for 3 months

 

The Japanese still say Vincent Van Gogh incorrectly.

I have a friend who is from Hong Kong.

Her pronunciation of Don Quixote always made me laugh.

I saw an article a few weeks ago about these whales in the gulf of Thailand. Due to overfishing the whales are starving. They have devised a new method of feeding and are having to work in groups to round up small fish, cos thats all there is ! and take turns in grabbing a mouthful. They are in trouble and are desperate to find fish. Thats why they visited the National Park. Completely the opposite reason to what the officials said.

shame to greet them with an oil spill

Agreed.

Hopefully the whales will not travel further north to where the spill is.

Ha ha - squirrel is a classic. I wanted to call our daughter Claudia, but hearing my wife say it made me change my mind.
