    I don’t understand why Mathew Perry mispronounced the word Slovenian..
    Both sets of my grandparents were born there, then immigrated to Cleveland early 1900’s; which has the 2nd largest population of Slovenians: next to Ljubljiana, Slovenian….I moved to indianapolis several years ago for a career move. Had a Slovenian traditional wedding in Cleveland too at age 40! Wouldn’t have it any other way! But the word is pronounced
    SlO VEE NEEN IAN. And not slovanian! Just
    ask Clevelanders how to pronounce it properly..
    They’ll straighten it out! I’ve never been to my grandparents ‘ homeland but would love to. I discovered my Dad’s 93 yr old first cousin Ani.
    I sure want to meet up with and meet other Slovenian relatives someday soon! SLOVENIAN IS THE WORD!
    THANKS FOR LISTENING.

    • Jenien, hi! You’re absolutely right… I come from slovenia, annd I’m disappointed that after 30 year’s the world and people in 21 century don’t know geography and after all sucseses of our sportsmens i don’t understand. About Matthew Perry, why he didn’t say that he was also drunk ass Marry and he drink everything that Slovens gave him?? And maybe he was to drunk to understand proper English because we all learn English or German language:-) I live nearby where the wedding was at, so i know what was going at that time:-)

      • my grandmother who was an immigrant Slovenian pronounced it Slo-Vane-yin. Maybe it depends where the family is from. She was from Idrija.

  2. Slovenians are fun loving people, and I don’t think anyone was offended by a slight mispronunciation by Matthew Perry.

  3. A little mispronunciation is OK. Gee wiz, I knew a SLO-VEEEEN-IAN woman who pronounced pasta as PASS-TA . . . No one’s perfect. Get over it.
