Re: Earwood/Yearwood Confusion

From my early days I have personally experienced the Earwood/Yearwood confusion. It might have something to do with the way people from the non-South hear or the way people from the South speak. My father would actually become angry with clerks and spell the name Y-E-A-R-W-O-O-D, adding "Just like it sounds."
