    I bought two. Now I can say I have two TYTs

    Okay, "I have a nice set of TYTs"

    I think I'm right on the ragged edge there

It's not "wax-on," "woo-shun," "woo-shin," or even "whoa-shun" but "whoa-shin," at least according to my sister-in-law.
    ...and here I was thinking it was pronounced WOUFF-HONG

    There is a street in my neighborhood named Bryn Mawr Pl. We always pronounced it 'Bryan Mar'

    I looked it up and it's Welsh for 'big hill'. Odd, since there is no big hill close to the street and there are no other Welsh names of streets.

    Since I'm not in China and don't plan on going there I would like to know how to pronounce it in American English. Or, maybe Spanish. Those are the languages I encounter most often.
