Continuing to be wrong...

No! Argh! Given how snotty Alex is about pronouncing French, and how he claims to speak Russian, it's amazing how badly he pronounces it. I'm always startled that the Clue Crew, or someone, doesn't look these up for him. Today, he pronounced Nabokov as NAA-boh-kahv [næˈbokɐv] which is pretty wrong. Try nah-BOH-kuff [nɐˈbokəf]. That aaa (æ) (like the vowel in cat or dad) doesn't even exist in Russian.

At least tonight he correctly pronounced Quincy (Massachusetts) as "KWIN-zee" (i.e., with a "Z" not an "S" sound)!
