A Doughnut

Just a quick hit on Venus and Adonis:

Seems as if I’ve been been pronouncing “Adonis” wrong my entire life.

I’ve been saying the name with that middle stressed syllable being a soft O sound, kind of like the first syllable in “tonic.”

But no.

It’s with a long O, kind of like the first syllable in “doughnut” or “donut.”

Mmmmmmmm, donuts.

So not Adahhhhhhnis, but Adohhhhhhnis. And I think Venus would like that.
