    Hell, why not jump on the bandwagon - oh and for the record, I'm from nearish to Shrewsbury; the correct pronunciation is (I think) Shrowsbree, but even round here there are loads of people who say Shroosbree.

    Capitals indicate stress when it's not obvious.

    Because we speak properly. :p: I actually say it with a short a, though I'm not entirely sure why, as I say carstle, but there it is.

    Oh, on the subject of Marquess - can also be spelled Marquis, and I believe should be pronounced Mar-cwis (not that I've ever met one or had to say it!). The female version is actually Marchioness. Random fact for the day!

    Very true. I worked for the Marquis of Bath for a while and all the stupid tourists seemed to think it was pronounced "marquee" :confused:
