Episode Four: what’s sex got to do with it?

“I know you’re probably busy having mind-blowing sex right now, but I feel that you need to know: your good friend Miranda Hobbes has just taken a piece of cake out of the garbage and eaten it. You’ll probably need this information when you check me into the Betty Crocker Clinic.”

Okay, another grammar/pronunciation question, and it’s got to do with ladies’ anatomy, so little boys, look away: Samantha says clit-OR-is, when I’m pretty sure everyone else on the show says CLIT-or-is (yep, I just typed “clit” in all caps). This is weird, sort of like the Ralph Lauren pronunciation. This type of thing infuriates me: I’ll have said something one way since I learned the word, then someone will say it the fancier, more sophisticated way, so I’ll say it like that, and then someone comes along and says you can pronounce it either way. So why did I have to change in the first place? The worst one is “Caribbean.” No one can seem to decide how that is pronounced: Ka-rib-ee-an or Care-a-be-an.
