Jewelry Pronunciation

Doc: This isn’t a major problem, but it’s something that drives me crazy. Virtually all of our on-air staff pronounces the word “jewelry” as jew-la-ree, not jewel-ree. I try to get everyone to pronounce words correctly on the air, but I can’t win this battle. Any ideas? - Anonymous Anon : My experi...
