Whatever / Re: A pronunciation question

Dear Pat:

If you go to bestapples.com (which is the website of the Washington Apple Commission), and, under Apple Info, choose 'apple varieties', you will see photos of nine apple varieties grown there.

Our local paper showed a photo from the 1910 Watsonville Apple Show. There, 12 growers from our small county in the Sierra Nevada foothills (Tuolumne County, California), displayed 52 varieties of apples!

A few independent growers here are preserving some of those heirloom varieties, but, alas, most are gone.

Best wishes,

Petra

Dear Pat:

Well, so far, it's unanimous: /ray-neer/, with the accent on the second syllable.

Best wishes,

Petra

Dear All:

What do others think of 'minimart' as an acceptable word for today's standard puzzle?

All best wishes,
