I just spent the weekend in Normandy. My host served me home-made Calvados brandy.
Enough of my esophagus remains intact that I can ask: How is the word "Calvados"
pronounced in Anglophone countries? My host and the other (French) guests all pronounced
it something like "cal-VAHD". Or was I also mis-hearing their pronunciation? The host
and guests are from all parts of France.
