I should know this, and I think I do, but hear it mis-pronounced so many times I'm beginning to wonder.

Is this pronounced:

1) Bom bar deer

-or-

2) Bom bar D A

thanks

john

Being French Canadian, I assume it is Bom bar D A.

We had a discussion on this last winter but I can't find the post!

It is "Bom-BAR'-dee-ay". After much discussion the matter was finally settled when we found a site which had the correct recording pronouncing Mr. Bombardier's name.

Hope this helps John -- Tom

In actual usage, more like "Bombard-yay", I think-
