how do you pronounce enclave. is it ONclave or INclave, the first dealer we went to call it inclave and thats what i call it now, but everybody i talk to about it now looks at me funny and sais onclave.
We have a major 6 lane road around here called "Rural Road". I cannot tell you how many people call it "Rule Road" - people from all walks of life cannot say a simple two syllable word and turn it into a single syllable different word. OK, maybe not so simple, two "R's" like that are a little tough to roll off the tongue but jeesh - they change the word entirely!A salesman on my hunt for an Enclave mispronounced Buick as Broorke (one syllable). so sad
Well sed!Big Larry said:The word enclave is pronounced ON-klayve. Don't put too much thought into automobile names. They're chosen for their sound, not their meaning. The word "enclave" sounds vaguely French, which to some people conveys a sense of high fashion and "classiness" (and therefore desirable to consumers eager to gain the illusion of increased social status just by making a purchase), even though France and the French people are neither high-fashion nor classy.
