I’ve noticed that many Filipinos are having difficulty pronouncing the word shrimp or shrimps. I can’t blame them it can actually be a tongue twister. Shrimp shrimps.
Me too, I noticed the other day I could no longer pronounce words correctly. Eh kasi matagal na akong hindi nagsasalita. Wala akong kausap. Shremp shremps.
If you have a restaurant make sure each and every person under your employ most especially the waiters, the frontliners dealing with customers could pronounce the word shrimp and shrimps correctly. Shremp, shrep, shrims, shirmp, shrip, would not cut it. Maybe due to our many dialects?
At Cibo, the cashier approached me and said “Mam hers your bell”.
