Reader's Poll

Via Seacoast Online, I just learned that Columbus Day is now the second busiest weekend for tourism in Maine--more than 700,00 cars used the Maine Turnpike to leaf peep.

Which brings me to my question:
How do you pronounce that word that describes what the peepers are viewing? Foliage?

Is it fO-lE-ij? Or fO-lij? Do you pronounce it with two syllables or three?

Darn but that word syllable is hard to spell

I'm starting to think it's a northeast vs. the rest the country thing pronunciation.

Thanks to all these newly wed or nearly dead leaf peepers we pronounce it muh-KNee in these here parts.

Oh, keep on sailin', you cruise lovin' silver foxes; keep on honeymoonin', you be-chinoed young insurance actuary and your kindergarten teacher wife. Baby needs a new pair of shoes and I can live without a parking space for a few more weeks if it means a full root cellar.
