How do you pronounce Detroit? For that matter, how do you pronoune the or people?
I think the variant ways people speak are all beautiful, especially accents that derive from different ethno-geographic and socio-economic backgrounds. When I was a kid, I noticed that Palestinians pronounced the word people: bee'-bohl. That is fading away fast, and it's a shame.
A man in my family, (you might say he's the patriarch of the family,) has been in the U.S. for almost 40 years, but he still pronounces Detroit: ظيترايض or ẓee'-ṭarayḍ. His pronounciation of it has such a classical Arabic literary character, whether he knows it or not.
