    I was told "Sa-Mon" with a silent "L"?

    Default Re: sam-mon or sal-mon

    phonetics indicate silent "L": ˈsa-mən
    (hmmm ... looks dangerously similar to post #7)

    Ask for sammon in a restaurant, you'll get a fish.

    Ask for summon in a police station, you'll get a fine.

    Ask for salmon in a city, you'll be directed to a fish and tackle shop.

    Ask for sabun in a shop, you'll handed a piece of soap.

    TANK Q, Sir, for the sermon. Now our command of the English language had improved tremendously. Our proficiency level is now "eat across the mountain" (Cantonese -seek gor sun)
