Do you pronounce ‘nuclear’ with two syllables, Art?  Or do you pronounce clear with two?  Because to me ‘new-clear’ is very different from ‘nuclear.’

Clear has two syllables. Clee-ah (remembering the non-rhotic R), although in common speech they would probably run together a little bit.

The other difference is that an American would pronounce the first syllable "noo-" rather than "nyoo-" to rhyme with the sound a kitten makes.

Okay, maybe it wasn't the most transportable joke.

By the way, the inner pollack in me wants to call a sandwich a "sangwidge".

One of my speech communication students said "sangwich."  I tried to correct her by telling her she was ruining the punch line:

Why won't you starve in the desert?
Because of all the sandwiches there.

You can't ruin that punchline. ;-)

Well, it's funny for a different reason if the punchline is:

Because of all the sangwidges there.
