The Brits do pronounce things differently at times. But besides nuclear,
which some people can't manage, linoleum, aluminium, and chimney are
frequent problem cases. Around here the majority of people add a T to
across. "He went acrost the street." And for reasons unknown Syracuse is
pronounced Saracuse.
