Outer Life

In Los Angeles we say "CON-troversy," pronouncing both of the "r" sounds. I don't think I've ever heard anyone pronounce it the way you do. Once we heard this guy pronounce it as "con-TRO-versy" which, of course, required us to beat the crap out of him.

Everyone in the Northeast seems to say Con-tro-versee except me. You seem to say it in a similar way to the way I do, but I don't really put much emphasis on the second r.
