The pronunciations of "baloney" and "bologna" are...


@anke baloney and bologna are the same, but Bologna (the place name) is different
(English 1st language)

@WizardOfDocs :blobSob:
bologna and Bologna are literally the same word. The sausage is named for the city.

@anke the only reason the pronunciation of the place name doesn't change is *because* it's a place name. Proper nouns are special.


@anke also, what do you mean bologna isn't just Oscar Meyer trying to make a cheap knockoff of salami in the 50s

(only mostly joking)
