    Maybe it's because of the region you're from --but "ban all" sounds so different from the way I would pronounce the word. I know the restrictions I have placed in this thread. I have had to live under my own rules. The other day I was forced to say "get" for the first syllable of kitchen.

    Banal sounds like "buh now" . That wouldn't count under my rules --I don't know what would. But "ban all" doesn't capture any of the sound in my opinion.

    The first syllable does not have the "p" sound
    You could have tried :sue purr

    The first syllable of "all" is okay. But "mound" is still mound. I can't think of a word for the second syllable.
    That's a stretch.
    I guess you didn't see mine: stir aisle
    Acceptable.
    Very good.
    The "s" sound should be in the first syllable --as in "youse" youse guys.
    But according to my rules it is not allowed --unless you can find a legit
    curerent dictionary that has it.

    For the second syllable sound the interjection of er would fit nicely.

    Weir is not a word.
    The word "send" works better for the first syllable. "Ture" isn't a word.
    The word "stoop" doesn't work for the first syllable because the "s" sound isn't present.

    Stew purr is much better.
    I have never heard of those things. Are those actual words?

    Remember to follow the rules that I established in the OP. I have had to follow them too. Otherwise I could have made up a bunch of stuff. But rules are good. There need to be parameters for games.

    Roc is a proper noun which is not permitted. Is "curr" a word?
    Wavey isn't a word --but "wavy" is.

    "Vee" isn't a word.

    There is no "s" sound in the first syllable.

    You could have chosen and instead.The "d" isn't usually pronounced.

    Therefore and sir would have sufficed.

    Well, C1, I stand corrected regarding :

    weir, ricer, curr, wavey and vee. I will take your word for "dicer".

    You didn't acknowlege that "ture" and "roc" should not have been used.

    And you have made no comment on your mispronunciations that I have pointed out.

    I doubt anyone here, including myself, has ever purused a dictionary --unless it was severely abridged to 20 pages or so.
