  1. From the online Oxford Dictionary:

    Quinoa
    Pronunciation: /ˈkiːnəʊə, kwɪˈnəʊə/

    Maybe check a dictionary for alternate pronunciations before condemning people based on how they say certain words…

  2. I did. It said the pronunciations were “keen-wah” and “kee-noa.” It seems there’s no consensus on how to pronounce the word.

    Either way, as I said, her pronunciation was the least of her problems.

    But fine. If it means that much to you, I retract my condemnation of her alternate pronunciation. You have bested me, valiant defender. I yield.
