Hello and thank ou for replying to my question.
Having had a reply from an American who married a Fothergill and responded in much the same way as you, do I assume that you are a North American citizen.
It must just be us Brits who pronounce the 'O' as a short one, whereas the american linguistics frequently extend the length of the vowel, as it sound wrong to extend an 'O' it has been changed to an "A".
Thank you for calling me.
Please feel free to correspond with me on any other topics. e.g life.
Many thanks
Tony Fothergill
