How Do You Pronounce "Gyro?"

It is even closer to 'Yee -doh' than it is to 'Yeer-oh' You open your mouth with a slight smile saying 'Yee' then you close it (like somebody just pinched your butt when you didn't expect it, finishing with 'doh.' Thus, a quick 'yee-doh.' Either way is much better than how my parents pronounce it, which is, 'Jeer -oce.' There isn't even an 's' in the singular. WTF mom and dad!

How do you pronounce 'bruschetta'?

The word Bruschetta comes from the word bruscare, to roast over coals. So, Bru-SKEH-tah is how is should be pronounced, although there will always be debate. It is sometimes annoying to hear a word pronounced differently than you pronounce it, but I'm sure that I butcher words that others hold dear to their ear.
