A little pride in pronounciation

I refer to Mr D Warren’s letter on Tuesday, August 17 re: our proper name — Northern Ireland.

I am proud of our history and our vernacular. However, I wish people would refer to Stormont, rather than Stormount, and Westminster rather than Westminister.

The incorrect pronounciation really jangles!
