The French pronounce the word "shih-connery,"
While in France in the late 60s, I noticed a movie marquee
for a James Bond film starring Sean Cannery. When I mentioned
the spelling error to my French companion, she said it was no mistake
at all because a connery in French is the English equivalent of a foul-up
where foul is replaced by another word starting with the letter F.
