    I find it interesting that many americans pronounce Notre Dame as Noter Dame, especially in reference to the University of Notre Dame’s sports teams.

    Makes no sense. Slight pronunciation difficulty (Le Havre) not accepted, but wrong spelling in Final Jeopardy is.

      I agree, I thought that was very unfair of them, it was a foreign word and the pronunciation should have been accepted.

      I think They are supposed to be somewhat lenient with foreign words but there has been some inconsistency lately in what will or won’t fly.

      There was a similar situation last week to this one with the Algarve answer (there’s a clip of it on the FJ recap). Pat added an “re” sound to the end of Algarve, but Alex didn’t accept it so it didn’t have to be reversed.

      On Monday, in Tim’s 4th win, I could have sworn that Joshua responded ValeNsa on a Lech Walesa answer in the Labor category and was expecting that to be reversed but it never came up again (and it didn’t make any difference to the outcome).

      Another bummer on this one (besides Brett Favre) is that we have towns here in the USA like Havre, Montana and Havre de Grace, Maryland where the “re” part is pronounced “er” so if he had said Haver that might have been okay!!!
