Goose Liver/Terminology Bastards #3

Note to self:

'Foie gras' is not pronounced "fooey grass", no matter how much sense it makes. Rather, it is pronounced "foy gra", with a snobby declension. I have also learned that 'matte' is not pronounced "matteh", and that people insist on saying "i-earn" when it is clearly 'iron', even though it sounds like "irun". This latter item I do no intend to compromise upon.
